What made you choose the GLOBIS MBA?

“I have always wanted to pursue postgraduate education. After working in media and entertainment production for several years, I decided it was the right time to learn more about business. My decision to join GLOBIS was a result of a trial class I joined in Manila, where I was able to experience the benefits of collaborative learning. The overall experience was immensely enriching.

Additionally, GLOBIS offers scholarships, which was a significant factor in my decision to enroll.”

What did you like best about studying at GLOBIS?

GLOBIS has a uniquely engaging and beneficial learning environment. The teaching style is truly collaborative and diverse. I studied alongside 29 professionals from 15 different countries.

What are your key takeaways from the GLOBIS MBA program?

My key takeaway has been about realizing what value you can bring to society, and how this value can enrich others. Realizing your kokorozashi (personal mission) becomes a strong foundation for your moral compass and pursuits in life.

How was your internship experience?

The Career Services team is very accommodating to student needs while understanding the talent requirements of different partner companies. Through the Integrated Learning Program, I got a full-time job offer from the same Japanese company where I did my internship.
