In 1992, GLOBIS started out with one marketing course in a small, rented classroom in the Shibuya district of Tokyo.
Since that founding 25 years ago, GLOBIS has endeavored to uphold its vision of fostering management ecosystems of People, Capital and Knowledge to bring creative change and innovation to society. We continuously strive to make this vision a reality.
For "People," we nurture and turn out business leaders who carry the torch of creative change and innovation from the Graduate School of Management, GLOBIS University (MBA program) and the GLOBIS Management School (non-degree). At the same time, we help companies sharpen their management capabilities through GLOBIS Corporate Education (GCE).
For "Capital," GLOBIS Capital Partners (GCP), a hands-on venture capital firm, offers comprehensive management assistance to aspiring start-ups, supporting their growth.
Finally, for "Knowledge," we disseminate management expertise by publishing the GLOBIS MBA series and other management books. Our website GLOBIS Insights is another source of management expertise.
