Doing Business in Japan the JMEC Way

The Japan Market Expansion Competition (JMEC) is a business training program in Tokyo centered on a business plan writing competition. The dual objectives of the program are to strengthen the skills of up-and-coming executives, while assisting foreign companies doing business in Japan.  JMEC is supported by 17 Chambers of Commerce in Japan.

The program is entirely in English and provides participants the opportunity to write an actual business plan focused on the Japan market.  The top three teams win Finnair tickets to Europe, an HP tablet and membership to the ACCJ.  The program costs JPY150,000 for a 7-month program and there a number of scholarship opportunities available.

Participants are native and non-native English speakers and have graduated from a 4-year college.  In JMEC 24, 20% of participants held a Masters or PhD degree.

JMEC 25 starts November 10th, 2018.  Attend one of our JMEC Alumni Events or information sessions to speak with Alumni and learn more about the program.
