The Executive Training Program (ETP) Association is a network of over 900 ETP alumni and members of the European business community in Japan and elsewhere around the globe. The ETP Association aims to promote and support alumni activities, to disseminate information about events and job opportunities to our ETP alumni members, and to strengthen business connections between ETPs and the European community in Asia and Europe.
As part of this effort ETPA publishes and updates a monthly events calendar of business and networking events, lectures and seminars. We also provide job postings, manage the alumni database containing updated contact information for our members, and organize ETPA networking events for all members.
Because ETPA relies on alumni for support, we hope that all former ETP participants will contribute to the association by joining the ETPA. It is through membership action and support that the ETPA will better serve alumni interests, and build meaningful networks within the European business community in Japan, Korea, and Europe.
