A great opportunity to spend two weeks in Japan.

Would you like to spend two weeks in Japan. Learn what makes Japan one of the most powerful economies in the world and what drives their business culture. More importantly visit some of the shining examples of Japanese production excellence? All this for just 30% of the cost. Well the good news is you can.

JASTECA (Japan Sri Lanka Technical and Cultural Association) in Association with AOTS Japan send out to teams of people from Sri Lanka to Japan on training scholarships. Every year they send close to 100 people on various programs which include management, leadership as well as production and logistics. They put you up in their facilities throughout Japan which are actually mini star class hotels. In addition to that they take you on a study tour of Japanese companies and put you up in Star class hotels.

Amazingly not many people know about this scheme and the competition to get in is not as intense as what one would think. Also they prefer to give these out to people who hold senior managerial positions. I just returned from one of these scholarships and I found it an amazing and life changing experience. I think everyone should give it a try.

Want to find out more please visit the websites which I have hyperlinked on this post.
