BDTI's e-Learning Courses: Company Law, Securities Law, and Corporate Governance

BDTI believes that it is most beneficial if managers and executives learn the basics an early stage, thereby allowing sufficient time for core knowledge and ” best practice” habits to permeate throughout the organization. For this reason, we offer low-cost e-learning courses on the Company Law, Securities Law, Corporate Governance Basics, and Corporate Governance Practice, which can be purchased on either on (a) a per-person, per-course basis or (b) an “Unlimited e-Learning” basis, for the entire company and its subsidiaries.

Register for the “Unlimited e-Learning” Package
Qualifying purchasers of the the “Unlimited e-Learning Package” that apply will also receive corporate participating member benefits (discounts on open programs, and use of the BDTI Director Bank), for the flat price of 300,000 Yen per year.  (Corporate participating member annual dues will be waived.)  Details are described here.
