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!

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.

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.
