JMEC Helps Individuals Enhance Their Careers in Japan

Because JMEC is a commitment of time and money, participants often want to speak with past JMEC participants before applying. The best time to do this is at information sessions conducted by JMEC each fall, where JMEC alumni will be present to tell attendees what it's "really" like to be a JMEC participant.

If you are not able to attend an information session, you can find out what past JMEC participants have to say about the program by reading one of the case studies below. You will find out why past participants joined the program and what they got out of it.

Please contact JMEC for any questions you may have.
