What made you choose the GLOBIS MBA?

I wanted to improve my business skills in order to solve problems in the healthcare industry. I chose GLOBIS because of its flexible class format, its ability to provide and share practical value, and its global environment.

How did GLOBIS help you achieve personal and professional changes?

“I’ve developed a variety of business skills which allow me to do business that contributes to solving essential issues.

In addition, the network I have gained has encouraged me to share my problems with others and to learn with them.

I am now able to think positively about taking on the challenge of global business.”

What are your favorite memories as a student?

“My best memory is from the Social Venture Management course. I had been looking for a way to integrate social problem-solving and business without much success. Through many examples, theories, and discussions in the class, I realized that it is possible.

After graduation, I put those lessons into practice by becoming an impact capitalist.”

What can you tell us about the other students in the program?

All of my classmates were like-minded, enthusiastic, open-minded, and interesting people. It was a valuable opportunity for me to discuss business and society with people of such diverse backgrounds and different countries.
