Why did you decide to do an MBA at GLOBIS?

Sidchana standingBefore knowing GLOBIS, I thought about what I really want to do in my future and I found that I want to be an entrepreneur. But I realized that I don't have any knowledge, connections or business ideas. I decided that I have to study an MBA to expand my connections and knowledge. In term of ideas, at first I hesitated between going to the US and Japan because the US has some of the best MBA programs in the world, but I wanted to get new ideas for my future business which are different from others and which can’t be found in Thailand. So, I decided to come to Japan.

I tried to find international universities in Tokyo because I cannot speak Japanese and I found GLOBIS. After I reviewed the curriculum I found that GLOBIS has many courses that I’m really interested in and we will learn through real case studies, including many cases from Harvard and other famous business schools. Moreover I saw the faculty all have lots of experience. So, I decided GLOBIS was the right school for me.

What is a typical day for you at GLOBIS?

It’s great because we have friends from more than 15 countries in my class, all sharing different backgrounds. So we can exchange knowledge and culture from many different countries. After the class we also go out to have dinner and travel to many places together which is very fun for me.

How has GLOBIS changed the way you think?

I think GLOBIS changed the way I think about possibility. Before joining GLOBIS I thought that to become an entrepreneur was so difficult for me but now after I learned many things here I found if you have strong perseverance and never stop learning you can achieve anything.

How is life in Japan?

I really love life in Japan. You will never get bored of Tokyo because there are many activities all year long, as well as many places to go and travel. One thing I love the most is the food. You will love it!

What are your career plans? How is GLOBIS helping with them?

Before I came here I knew that I want to be an entrepreneur. I think my experience at GLOBIS will help me a lot because before joining GLOBIS I still didn’t have a concrete plan and schedule to achieve my personal mission. There is a session every three months for us to share and develop our personal missions and make them more concrete. For me what I am lacking are connections. At GLOBIS we have many opportunities to expand our networks and make business connections.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering studying at GLOBIS?

Sidchana upDon’t hesitate, because you will have many friends from many countries around the world and the curriculum will strengthen you thoughts and ideas and the way you think. There are also generous scholarships available. Moreover we have so much fun outside of school as well that I can’t explain it all!
