It is undeniable that Japan’s fascinating culture and philosophies put everyone in awe. What makes it more interesting is the fact that one word can mean a lot or has a deeper meaning such as “Kaizen”, “Ikegai”, “Nemawashi”, “Kintsugi”, “Wabi-sabi”, and a lot more. This is a reflection that Japan has a lot more to offer than what we see.

Recently, GLOBIS University, Japan’s largest business school founder and president Yoshito Hori came to the Philippines and spoke with the media to give a background about GLOBIS expansion to the Philippines.

He noted that GLOBIS University’s students and alumni around the world found their “Kokorozashi“, the “Leader’s Mind”, through the program of Japan’s leading business school.

Apart from that, Mr. Hori led the seminar about the program at The Peninsula Manila in Makati City, and how can the Globis program empower the Filipino people, whether as entrepreneurs or young executives in local or multinational companies.

The founder of GLOBIS University reiterates the institution’s commitment to the Philippine market and also introduced their Pre-MBA Program for its April 2024 term.

Highlighting the theme “Revolutionizing Business Education in the Technovate Era,” Hori emphasized GLOBIS’ innovative use of technology, particularly AI, in delivering world-class business education. He shared insights into the unique offerings of GLOBIS, setting the stage for Filipino students eager to embark on their educational journey with the institution.

Starting April 2024, GLOBIS Manila will offer aspiring business professionals the opportunity to participate in the English Pre-MBA Program, particularly the essential course called Critical Thinking, which provides students with essential business mindset and skills tailored for success in today’s competitive global landscape. GLOBIS Manila students will join GLOBIS’ esteemed international network, gaining access to exclusive seminars and events spanning GLOBIS’ global branches.

In welcoming the Philippines as a key market, Hori remarked, “The launch of GLOBIS Manila signifies a pivotal moment in our global expansion strategy. We are excited to bring our innovative Pre-MBA Program to professionals in the Philippines, empowering them with the skills and knowledge to excel in today’s dynamic business environment.”

Highlighting the Philippines as a high-potential market for GLOBIS MBA, with the largest non-Japanese cohort enrolled in the English program and the highest rate of student referrals, Hiro emphasized the strength of the Filipino community in promoting GLOBIS’ mission and value proposition to a broader audience.

The Pre-MBA Program serves as a stepping stone for students to familiarize themselves with fundamental business concepts from the GLOBIS MBA curriculum, paving the way for further academic pursuits in Tokyo, Japan or online. Earned credits from the Pre-MBA Program are transferable to GLOBIS University’s MBA degree programs, offering a flexible and seamless transition for aspiring business leaders.

Meanwile, Nica Magnaye, President of GLOBIS Manila, shares, “As a proud alumna of the GLOBIS MBA Program, I am excited to see our vision of fostering excellence in business education come to life in the Philippines. We aim to provide aspiring business leaders with GLOBIS’s unique ecosystem of people, capital, and knowledge, while also fostering our vibrant Filipino community dedicated to driving positive change.”

Founded in 1992, GLOBIS has established itself as the largest business school in Japan, with a global presence spanning the USA, Europe, China, Singapore, Thailand, and now, the Philippines. The launch of GLOBIS Manila reaffirms the institution’s commitment to delivering quality education worldwide.
