The Online Business School Experience

GLOBIS online MBA courses are highly interactive, delivered live using Zoom technology. Discuss, collaborate, and debate in small, private classes.

All online MBA courses are delivered by our faculty, who are experts in their related fields with years of practical experience in their industry. Though present throughout the online classes, their main role is to facilitate conversations among the students.

Students can actively participate in discussions using video, voice, and chat features, or by raising hands, using virtual whiteboards and taking part in group work. The experience is just as good as being in a real classroom.
