Submissions for the 2021 GlobalCCU Awards
are now closed!

Every two years, GlobalCCU is pleased to present the prestigious GlobalCCU Awards that recognise the very best Corporate Universities / Academies / Centres of Excellence at the global scale that create strategic value for People, Business and Society.

Beginning in 2013, the GlobalCCU Awards are the only truly worldwide Awards contest in the Corporate University field. DAU, Defense Acquisition University (USA) won the Best overall Gold Award in 2013, UniBB - Banco do Brasil in 2015, Unibrad - Bradesco (Brasil) 2017 and PT Telkom (Indonesia) in 2019.

Despite the pandemic crisis and travel restrictions, GlobalCCU has decided to open this famous contest to support Corporate Universities, giving vital opportunities to continue to collaborate and exchange ideas and help to prepare for a brighter picture of the creation of value of Corporate Universities for the time ahead.

However, while it is not possible to celebrate the outcomes of the worldwide contest in person in 2021 as we did in the past, we will be pleased to announce the Award winners on 31 March 2021 and will keep you posted regarding the organisation of the event. Please check our website regularly for updates.

2021 GlobalCCU Awards Journey

Jury assessment

Applications are distributed to the different judges of the Advisory and Judging Committee by the president of the contest. Each application is handled by several judges for cross checking the assessments and avoiding iniquity.  
A consolidation of the results is made among all the judges who deliberate and decide on the names of the winners from the list of the finalists. In case of conflict, it is the president of the A&J Committee, and the representatives of the previous Best overall awards winners, who make the final decision.

Announcement of the Winners

We will be pleased to announce the Award winners on 31 March 2021 and will keep you posted regarding the organisation, here and in the GlobalCCU Awards Portal.
