Executives are encouraged to apply for the new 2014 cycle of the Executive Training Programme (ETP) in Japan and South Korea as there are only few days left to meet the deadline on May 31.
The program that will run from November 2014 to November 2015 offers 45 places available for ETP Japan and 15 for ETP South Korea.
The Executive Training Programme is a unique 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.
In this respect, the European Union helps Romanian executives by funding the whole training course and providing a scholarship (26,400 Euro a year for Japan, and 24,000 Euro a year for South Korea). Sponsoring companies, meaning employers of selected executives are encouraged to contribute to the living expenses of ETP participants.
The ETP begins with a three-week introductory course at the School of Oriental and African studies, London University, where participants learn about the East Asian economy, history, culture and modern society. Following the European module, participants move to Japan or Korea for a 30-week business, management and language training run by leading universities. Participants get the unique opportunity to apply newly acquired skills and knowledge in practice during a 12-week internship in a local company.
ETP is open for EU nationals working for European companies with an annual turnover above €500,000 and more than five employees and who are interested in launching or expanding their activities in Japan or Korea.
European executives can apply by accessing the website www.euetp.eu. Interested companies benefit from Deloitte assistance during the whole application process, as well as for the stages following the acceptance into the program.
About Executive Training Programme (ETP):
The Executive Training Programme (ETP) is a EU-funded programme that provides European companies with the business, language and cultural training necessary for successfully entering the Japanese and South Korean markets. The way business is done in Japan and South Korea is so vastly different to how it is done in Europe that EU companies and executives doing business there need to be provided with specialist skills and insights. Growing the number of EU companies operating in both Japan and South Korea is a key strategic imperative for the European Commission.
