Faculty Message:

"The ability to assess a given situation, to quickly sift through data to indentify key factors, is essential in any profession. In business, it is the foundation of management and leadership. Without the ability to make sense of numbers and to understand what they mean, a manager is lost. But it isn’t enough to make sense of the numbers. A manager must also be able to explain these numbers to others and have them understand why and how he or she reached his or her conclusion. The analytical courses – critical thinking and quantitative analysis – help GLOBIS students do this. Lacking this ability, a person cannot lead. In order for people to believe in you, they must first believe you. Hence, critical thinking and quantitative analysis courses are the foundation of business leadership."
