People who are passionate about learning should attend MDI.TOKYO Programs and Courses.

Two Admissions Pathways

Most of our offerings have two admissions pathways:

Company-Sponsored Participants

Talent Development Network members with HR or L&D responsibilities have exclusive access to Talent Development Network – Private Reserve Tracks. This access enables you to

  • Option 1: reserve seats for your employees to attend Weeknight Sessions (Monthly Format) in a Talent Development Network – Private Reserve Track, or
  • Option 2: have MDI.TOKYO Programs delivered in person on your company premises in the afternoon or in the evening (depending on availability).

Contact us to discuss your needs and get started.

Note: If you are a full-time employee who is interested in participating in an MDI.TOKYO Program, please ask your colleagues in HR or your boss (if he or she has L&D responsibilities) to contact MDI.TOKYO and request a seat for you. If your company will not sponsor you, please consider becoming a Community Organizer and reserving a Group Track.

Self-Sponsored Participants

Community Organizers who are interested in having MDI.TOKYO deliver Programs to their Group can reserve a Powered by MDI.TOKYO – Group Track.

  • Option 1: An existing group with entity status (e.g. Chambers of Commerce, professional associations) can reserve a Group Track.
  • Option 2: An emergent group (e.g. Meetup-type groups that form around a shared interest such as FinTech or AI, networking groups, alumni groups, groups of friends, etc.) can reserve a Group Track.

With a Group Track, the Community Organizer is in charge of recruiting and admissions. However, MDI.TOKYO is happy to offer advice and to provide promotional support by creating a Group landing page for registration and billing.

Contact us to discuss your needs and reserve a Group Track.

Mapping Participants to MDI.TOKYO Programs

In the 9 box Performance x Potential grid above we have mapped MDI.TOKYO’s Programs to the relevant boxes indicating which types of participants are best suited to each Program.

Note: The 9 box grid above is a tool often used by HR departments in global companies to measure an employee’s current performance and future potential. This framework is especially useful for management succession planning.
