Should We Invest in Corporate Universities? This article has two objectives: to outline the reasons for investing in a corporate university and to define the options available to managers entrusted with the task of establishing one.


Based on our analysis of the main engines of a knowledge-based economy, we identify the consequences for organizations: greater dependence on knowledge-based strategies and thus the necessity to manage this knowledge systematically.


More specifically, we focus on the relationship between knowledge and strategic advantage, demonstrating how corporate universities can serve as training and mobilization tools for a corporate curriculum. We then explore the various kinds of corporate universities, specifying the nature of the choices to be made. The article ends with an examination of the future prospects for these tools.
