The Executive Training Programme is an opportunity for European executives and companies to expand their businesses in Japan and Korea through active learning combining business and language training, an internship in a local company, and support for business plan development. The EU funds the entire programme and provides a scholarship throughout for each participant.
Japan and Korea are leading world economic powers and important partners for the EU. Japan is the 6th largest EU trade partner and Korea is the 9th. These highly attractive and thriving markets offer vast business opportunities for European companies.
Adapting to local business practices
Japan and Korea’s societal and business cultures are very different to European cultures which can mean that doing business in Japan and Korea is often challenging for European executives. For this reason, the European Commission launched the Executive Training Programme which is designed to help EU companies to understand the specifics of Japan and Korea’s economies, language and business cultures.
The ETP will accommodate up to 45 participants for Japan and 15 for Korea per cycle.
The deadline for applications for ETP 2014-2015 is 15 May 2014.
