GlobalCCU statement

Like all the voices that are rising across the world for an end to the invasion of Ukraine, for philosophical and moral reasons, GlobalCCU cannot remain silent in the face of this humanitarian catastrophe and of the threat of global escalation of conflict.

Our international, apolitical and universalist (in the sense of loyalty to and concern for others without regard to national or other allegiances) organisation, respecting people and the diversity of cultures, was founded on the conviction that it is essential for those in charge of Corporate Education to discuss beyond borders and beyond cultures about their practices, experiences, questions and their doubts in order to improve their performance and to structure the future of Corporate Universities together. These have proven to be powerful levers for action in developing effective solutions to the structural problems of our contemporary societies. They are also important spaces for enlightened education for judgement and thinking that can help people understand our human and environmental interdependence around the world. Create value for People, Business, Society and Planet is our motto. In 2008, we organised our first GlobalCCU Forum on the theme: ‘Make your Corporate University a lever of your corporate responsibility’ with participants from 26 countries on five continents.

Just like Olympism or scientific research, we have always affirmed our conviction to disregard geopolitics, bringing together citizens from countries in open or latent conflict in the most unlikely of ways, and it has always been, for the people gathered, great moments of humanity and even joy. We have forged bonds of trust and friendship that will last forever, regardless of the vagaries of history, with citizens from everywhere. We think of our many Ukrainian peers during this tragic time and of our Russian members who are in no way responsible for the current tragedy and who find themselves prey to the closure of their country and all the resulting consequences.

Our dearest wish is that peace is restored very soon and we are able to turn this ordeal into an opportunity to strengthen our ties and collaborations for the benefit of many.


In a hybrid-work environment disrupted by the digitisation of the business world, the pandemic crisis and now by the systemic impacts of war at the global scale, Corporate Universities have more than ever to be resilient and take time to analyse the role they can play to unite people and to challenge and implement the business strategies of their parent organisation.

It is what you will learn from GlobalCCU’s CORPORATE UNIVERSITY STRATEGIC POSITIONING MASTERCLASS, to upskill your strategic thinking in piloting your Corporate University to create value for People, Business, Society and Planet.

Corporate Universities in the world

Corporate University is the generic name given to educational structures based in private and public, commercial and non-commercial Organisations to:

  • challenge and implement —through education— the Organisation's strategies in human, economic, financial, technological, communication, social, environmental and digitization terms
  • embody the identity, culture and brand of the Organisation for all its stakeholders

It is a space for applied education and applied strategies, where priority is given to teams, so that they can understand their company's characteristics, challenges, issues and take new paths that leave the beaten track and become true political instruments.

It’s a space for learning, thinking, sharing, creating, doing, mobilizing the collective intelligence; a structure of communication, debate and mediation; a space of applied education and applied strategies for serving the development the performance of People, Business and Society.
