Satoshi Hirose


Mr. Hirose Satoshi is a professor at and the dean of GLOBIS University. He teaches Finance, Financial Reorganization, Global Strategy, Leadership, and Management Philosophy for both the Japanese and English MBA programs. Before joining GLOBIS, Mr. Hirose launched a new business as SVP/Co-COO of BELLSYSTEM24, the largest CRM company in Japan, after it was acquired by Bain Capital.

Mr. Hirose started his career as a derivatives trader and corporate risk manager. He then joined AT Kearney as a management consultant specializing in corporate strategy development and implementation, corporate transformation, merger and acquisition arrangements, and post-merger integration for various companies in Japan and Asia.

Later, he took on the role of corporate executive officer, VP in charge of operations and technology, chief of staff, and project management officer at AIG/AIU. There, he led several corporate transition programs, including a turnaround after the financial crisis in 2008.

Sound management creates a competitive organization, while loose management guides a company to difficulties in the long run and makes stakeholders, including employees and their families, face an unexpected, tough environment. Finance is an excellent tool to examine the current situation with facts and logic, and also to evaluate the impact and feasibility of strategic options.

Everybody need not become a financial specialist. However, understanding how to use finance is indispensable for a good management officer.

My class is designed to create good management officers, rather than financial specialists.
