GlobalCCU, created by Annick Renaud-Coulon in 2005, is a leading global network made up exclusively of corporate university directors. Its objective is to help its members share their experiences, projects and issues so they can optimize their performance and show their stakeholders that their corporate university, academy, institute or campus is a true lever in creating value for individuals, their organizations and society at large.
Following a first global event in Paris in 2008 on the theme, "Your corporate university: leveraging your responsibility," GlobalCCU developed a collaborative platform, the Corporate the University Community Platform (CUCP), which has become a global authority, with corporate universities in 32 countries on four continents: South Africa, Germany, Austria, Azerbaijan, Denmark, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Croatia, United Arab Emirates, United States, Spain, Estonia, Finland, France, Great Britain, India, Indonesia, Italy, Luxemburg, Morocco, Mexico, Nigeria, Norway, Netherlands, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Sweden, Togo and Turkey.
