GLOBIS Online MBA, our most flexible program

Designed for maximum convenience, the GLOBIS Online MBA is a comprehensive two-year management degree. The program can be completed entirely online, or by freely combining on-campus and online classes.

You decide the schedule for each three-month term, with classes held on weeknights and weekends. The recommended path is to start with fundamental courses, which ensure a solid business foundation, then move onto applied and specialized courses. This way you can explore fields which specifically align with your interests and goals.

At the end of your studies, you have the opportunity to participate in a research project, build your own venture, or work directly with one of GLOBIS’ corporate partners.

With our latest Technovate courses, you can gain knowledge about the many technological disruptions in today’s business world, preparing you for leadership in the 21st Century.

To graduate within two years, you will need to earn 36 credits (approximately 24 courses). This equals an average of three courses per term (each course consists of six bi-weekly classes). For even more flexibility, spread your workload by starting with the Pre-MBA Program and/or extending the program.

Total flexibility

This program is designed to fit the busy schedules of working professionals. In cases when you can’t attend class, you can take a substitute class, access the class recording, and download the in-class handouts. Beyond your classes you can connect with students and faculty through an online collaboration platform, and organize independent study sessions to optimize your learning.

Study in English or Japanese

You can earn up to 12 credits from the Japanese MBA program (either online or on-campus). All credits acquired are counted toward the Part-time MBA.
