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.
