The Board Director Training Institute of Japan (BDTI), a Japanese “public interest” organization certified by the government, was established in 2009 by experts and opinion leaders active in academic and business circles. BDTI’s mission is to increase trust between corporations and the public, and facilitate the safe and ethical development of the Japanese economy and Japanese companies, by improving corporate governance and accelerating the spread of effective management methods.  We believe that training is the key to doing these things, for the reasons explained in this memo.


Since BDTI’s establishment, we have been fortunate enough to receive the support and participation of senior leaders (and leading firms) around the world, all of whom share our purpose and sense of mission.

In order to spread knowledge about corporate governance and related management methods as widely as possible, BDTI sells a low-cost E-Learning Course with modules covering the Company Law and corporate governance theory and practice.

Together with first-class collaborating organizations, BDTI also offers (a) intensive “director training” programs that combine corporate governance know-how with global management methods; and (b) seminars on specific topics, led by lecturers who are experts in each respective field.


Another of BDTI’s activities is to provide – on this web site – News and Announcements on related topics, an Interactive Discussion Forum, and within that a Data Library. These various resources provide updates and information about corporate governance, management techniques, and related subjects of interest. We hope that by facilitating the open exchange of information and opinions in this manner, we can promote constructive debate and dialogue on these topics. By all means, please make full use of these resources.


BDTI is a “public interest organization” approved by the Japanese government, and is able to conduct its activities because of the generosity of our donors. If you share our sense of mission, and are interested to help support our activities, - whether by way of making a donation, becoming a “participating member”, or advertising on this web site, – please feel free to contact us at any time.
