GLOBIS Celebrates Entrepreneurial Success of Mihoko Suzuki with Alumni Award
(Tokyo, Japan) On July 7, 2018, GLOBIS proudly presented the Alumni Award to Mihoko Suzuki, GLOBIS University Part-time MBA Class of 2012. She is the first-ever recipient from the MBA programs held in English.
Ms. Suzuki won in the Creation field for her role as a co-founder of TASKAJI, a sharing economy platform that connects housekeepers and customers. Her work with TASKAJI empowers women through skill development, career support, and community, and has resulted in multiple awards and media recognition. The impact on her community exemplifies the mission of GLOBIS and the values imparted to its alumni.
Ms. Suzuki’s role at TASKAJI is a reflection of the hard work and dedication that began during her time as an MBA student. At GLOBIS, she identified her personal mission–her life goal, or kokorozashi in Japanese–to improve the lives of working mothers. Over time, she honed this kokorozashi and carefully studied related industries. A GLOBIS MBA classmate introduced her to TASKAJI’s founder, who later invited her to join the company.
Ms. Suzuki presented this story at the first GLOBIS English MBA reunion on July 1, together with Jose F. Villasenor at a workshop led by Dean Tomoya Nakamura. Speaking on kokorozashi, they shared their personal missions and encouraged alumni to reflect on their commitment and goals to carry GLOBIS values into the future.
