Why did you decide to do an MBA at GLOBIS?

My profession in audit and advisory requires me to possess vision as a business leader. I believe that the syllabus of GLOBIS MBA program is most relevant to what I really need. After working for 5 years, I felt that was a good time to take a further step in my career path, and an MBA degree could help me achieve my goal.

Japan is one of the critical financial centers in the world, a major IPO and M&A player. Also in my previous company, I had the chance to serve many Japanese clients. They are companies investing to Vietnamese market. Therefore I decided to choose Japan as the place to further my study and learn more about its business culture. Among international business schools in Japan, GLOBIS was the most famous for diversity. My batch was composed by 17 different countries! This created a mutual learning and sharing environment which is very hard to find in other schools.

How has GLOBIS changed the way you think?

At GLOBIS you will be exposed to 100% case study method, which enables you not to limit ourselves to “conventional wisdom” and encourages you to propose multidimensional analysis as well as diverse solutions under your own perspectives. 

Since my classmates and I came from different backgrounds, seeing one problem assessed in different viewpoints really helped us gain more insights and broaden our mindset.

What I really like about GLOBIS is the mission of the school: “To develop visionary leaders who create and innovate societies.” Even more than getting an MBA, I would like to contribute to the community. GLOBIS is trying to help us develop ourselves into tomorrow’s leaders and to realize our dreams in the near future.

How are you finding life in Japan?

Japan is a peaceful place to live: safe environment, convenient transportation, friendly people, fine cuisine, rich tradition. What would I want more? I really enjoy my life in Japan.

What advice would you give to students considering studying at GLOBIS?
