GLOBIS University President Yoshito Hori welcomed the new students in a special address. Based on the GLOBIS Educational Principles of building skills, fostering a network, and cultivating a personal mission, he implored the students to take risks, in order to aim to become visionary leaders who create and innovate societies throughout Japan, Asia, and the world.
Three students represented their incoming classes with speeches. Samantha Anne Buenaventura Sales, from the Philippines, discussed why she decided to get her MBA: “I set off to start a small business in Manila, a digital marketing agency. I learned a lot of things through experience and mistakes. And somehow I still felt the longing to do more. I wanted to pursue my Kokorozashi, my personal mission.”
