On Management education & Development issues

New export opportunities of between €20billion and €40billion a year by 2020 could emerge for European companies trading with Japan and Korea according to a report conducted on behalf of the European Commission.

The Executive Training Programme (ETP) helps European companies’ executives providing the knowledge and skills necessary to overcome business, language and cultural barriers of these markets and take advantage of the many trade and investment opportunities.

The ETP involves a 3-week intensive training course in the UK on the culture, history and civil society of Japan or Korea. This is followed by a 30-week business and language training in Japan or Korea and, finally, a 12-week internship in a Japanese or Korean company. The European Commission funds the whole training cycle and a scholarship of around €2,000 a month.

EFMD involvement in this project is to raise awareness about this training programme and to help Deloitte as the project leader to recruit as many managers and companies who are interested to go through the training programme as possible.

The next training cycle of the ETP begins in November 2012. The enrolment is still open, apply now via the ETP website: www.euetp.eu
