Global Business Leaders (GBL) initially founded back in 2008 by Michael Wu as a student organization in Ritsumeikan APU.  Here in GBL, we provide a platform for students to learn, grow, think critically and improve skills and qualities in every aspect through various activities and events.
Throughout the years, we have been organizing regular events where GBL members are given the opportunities to utilize and hone their various skills either as staff or a participant, to achieve individual and collective goals. GBL is a culturally diverse and inclusive organization with members, participants, and alumni coming from across the globe! We are here to support, learn and be a mentor each other in all aspects of education.

Entering our 15th year, with the new mission of expanding our reach to students from other universities all over Japan as well as overseas, in December 2021, GBL started its journey as a new corporate entity in Japan as GBL Co. Ltd. (GBL 株式会社).
