The Corporate University guarantees the excellence of our managerial and technical skills at international level. It is also a powerful and unique means of combining and sharing our talents within the Company across borders.

Wherever we might be based in the world, Sao Paulo, Shanghai or Paris, the Corporate University has been designed to give a core set of knowledge, values and expertise to the Group’s workforce.  Since it was launched in 2010, the Corporate University has become a major player in our change momentum.

End of 2012 the Corporate University achieved the Corporate Learning Improvement Process (CLIP) accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

The CLIP accreditation is an internationally acclaimed quality award to the most innovative corporate universities. Thanks to the CLIP organisational scheme and the network that can thus be accessed, this award has proven a unique opportunity for the Corporate University designed to obtain an insight into the best practices on the market. This is the first time one of the youngest corporate universities has been awarded with such a recognition.

Culture of Excellence

The training modules designed by the Corporate University aim for excellence in line with four major missions: professional training of Group employees; development and support of managers; transmission of corporate values; and induction of newcomers to the Company.

The Corporate University promotes three types of training programmes:

1.    “Core Training Programmes” designed to allow the women and men within the Group to share a core set of knowledge and behaviours: English as a foreign language (as well as six other foreign languages, including Mandarin); business economics; awareness programmes to cross-cultural relations in the workplace with a view to achieving efficient collaborative work with other car manufacturers;

2.    “Corporate Professional Training Programmes” designed in conjunction with the professional experts within the concerned departments and the training designers of the Corporate University;

3.    “Managerial Training Programmes” complemented by a management and personal development e-learning training offer.
Besides, the Corporate University ensures the employability of Group people in line with our social commitments.
First-class Academic Partnerships Worldwide

The objective of the Corporate University is to build an extended university whose links with the world’s finest educational establishments will help us to attract the best talents. This notion of an extended university depends upon lasting relationships with academic establishments and upon setting up laboratories and teaching and research chairs with the support of the Group’s Research & Development Department.

The contributions of the chairs in terms of inputs and knowledge will broaden our fields of expertise and promote their integration into our future projects. This has of course a tremendous impact on the Group’s ability to innovate in line with this necessary ‘step ahead’ that will allow us to rank among the best-performing carmakers in the world.

The Corporate University today maintains targeted relationships with more than thirty engineering schools, universities and business schools around the world.
