GLOBIS Asia Campus Launches English Pre-MBA Program in Singapore. Students can choose to continue online to acquire GLOBIS University MBA


Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo — The “GLOBIS Asia Campus” has officially opened in downtown Singapore and is offering its first English Pre-MBA course. After attending the GLOBIS Asia Campus, students have the option to continue their studies by enrolling in GLOBIS University’s Online MBA Program and obtaining an MBA (Master of Business Administration). This is the first time GLOBIS is offering English MBA courses overseas.

The GLOBIS Asia Campus is launching with a course in Organizational Behavior and Leadership. Like other GLOBIS courses, this course lasts 3 months and consists of six classes, each lasting 3 hours. Students can continue their studies and pursue their MBA in either the Part-Time On-Campus & Online MBA Program (online and/or at the Tokyo campus) or the Full-Time MBA program (on-campus in Tokyo). The credits earned in Singapore are eligible to be transferred to either of these programs.

The main participants are expected to be business professionals living in Singapore, including Japanese expatriates, who wish to study Pre-MBA courses in English. At the GLOBIS Asia Campus, students also have the opportunity to expand their network through after-class get-togethers and study sessions.

Tomoya Nakamura, the Dean of GLOBIS University, and the lecturer of the first course being offered, remarked, “As a school that fosters leadership, we put particular emphasis on courses like this. I look forward to meeting those who want to demonstrate their leadership in Asia and throughout the world with Singapore as their hub.” By offering an English Pre-MBA program at its GLOBIS Asia Campus, GLOBIS will accelerate the development of business leaders active in Asia and the world, and strive to become Asia’s No. 1 business school.
