Brandon Tatum profile
Brandon Tatum Sound Cloud, Director of Business & Legal Affairs, United States

The formulation and focus on kokorozashi has been impactful for me, and it clearly shows in my current career. GLOBIS puts a great focus on developing your personal mission, and throughout the MBA I could focus on my life's biggest interest: music!

Carola Pava
Carola Pava Medina World Health Organization, Technical Officer, Colombia

My GLOBIS experience helped in many different aspects of my career. The class environment at GLOBIS was quite diverse and provided a sandbox to experience a global environment.

Jose Fernandez
José Fernández-Villaseñor Mizuho America, Neurosurgery Senior Marketing Manager & Kegg, Senior Clinical Trial and Data Scientist, Mexico

I had to overcome enormous challenges to break into the cutthroat start-up scene, but every time I was confronted with a challenge, what kept me going was truly my kokorozashi.
