SOAS Enterprise

Executive Training Programme


SOAS is part of an international consortium selected by the European Commission to deliver the prestigious Executive Training Programme for Japan and Korea. The one-year training programme targets executives from EU-based businesses seeking to develop trade with Japan and Korea. The programme is funded by the EU and has been running for over 25 years in Japan and 7 years in Korea.

Up to 60 selected participants (45 for Japan and 15 for Korea) will attend a 3-week intensive programme at SOAS which will provide historical, political, economic, cultural and business background on their destination country. Following the introductory module they will then transfer to Waseda University in Tokyo or Yonsei University in Seoul where they will undertake 9 months of business and language training as well as a 3-month internship with a Japanese or Korean company relevant to their field of work.

Applications for the 2014/15 ETP programmes which start in November 2014 are now open – please visit www.euetp.eu for full details of the programme and advice on how to apply.
