The GLOBIS MBA programs held an exchange session in Shimbashi, Tokyo on March 30, 2012, with one of the world’s top business schools: The Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley. About a dozen GLOBIS students joined forty Haas students discuss the 3/11 disaster and life as an MBA student in Japan. Two GLOBIS students from Thailand and Canada talked about their experiences, including supporting Project KIBOW and other volunteer and charity activities in Tohoku. The talks were followed by an open discussion with small mixed groups of GLOBIS and Haas students to enhance the global networks of the participants.
