International Evaluation and Comparison

For the first time, an in-depth study has been conducted on 4 continents (75 cases across 17 countries) during 18 months by a team of 20 people. It presents the phenomenon of Corporate Universities in a very detailed manner in its strategic and operational realities.
Until this point, studies on the subject have contained 90% American cases. This research allows one to discover several of the best practices of European, Asian and Australian Corporate Universities and their cultural tendencies that affect them.
