What made you decide to pursue an MBA?

“Running my own company with zero knowledge of business made me face immense challenges, and being a science student made it even more difficult to comprehend those challenges objectively.

I decided to pursue an MBA to acquire the skill sets I was missing. I also wanted to develop a mindset that would advance critical thinking for business operations. “

Why did you choose to study in Japan?

The culture and famous work ethic made me choose Japan without a second thought. And because Tokyo is the powerhouse of Japan, I made the obvious choice to reach higher opportunities and make my dreams a reality.

What does a typical week as a GLOBIS MBA student look like?

“The Full-time MBA program is an intensive program where you spend most of the week studying. We typically have two classes during the day, three times a week. I also take courses from the Part-time & Online MBA program on weekends and weekday nights, which is a great opportunity to expand my network.

When I don’t have classes, I join academic and social events offered by GLOBIS, study with classmates, and explore Tokyo.”

What do you like the most about studying at GLOBIS?

The best part about GLOBIS is that you learn from faculty actively involved in or running a business. That provides a more realistic approach to help you master a particular subject.
