We believe it is the responsibility of businesses to enact social change.

GLOBIS was built on inspiring purpose-driven leadership, and we lead by example. After all, we’re not just a business school. We also create platforms where leaders can communicate and collaborate, where local areas can find opportunities, and where there is hope even in the wake of devastating disaster.
