The Global Council of Corporate Universities (GlobalCCU) summed up the results of two years of work, naming the winners of the international contest in the field of corporate education. The highest award was given to the Corporate University of Russian Railways, which was recognized by the jury as the Best Overall Corporate University in the world.

Every two years, the Global Council of Corporate Universities, that includes members from 50 countries, holds the GlobalCCU Awards – a large-scale event, to which participants prepare in advance, accumulating knowledge and achievements of recent years.

For the first time since 2005, the contest was held in the online format and 17 corporate universities from all over the world reached its final, following the results of a tense race.

On May 5, 2021, the winners of all five categories were announced, and the Corporate University of Russian Railways received a gold award in the main category – "Best Overall Corporate University" - for outstanding achievements that create strategic values for people, business and society.

The results of the joint careful work of the HR Department of JSC "Russian Railways" and the University team were presented for the contest – this is a whole range of projects aimed at the development of human capital and the implementation of the company's strategic goals through learning and development of corporate education.

The jury highly appreciated the learning projects in the field of digital transformation of Russian Railways, new formats of open education, international educational projects and the system of talent pool development built in Russian Railways. The president of the Global Council of Corporate Universities, Annick Renaud-Coulon, noted not only the level of the projects presented, but also "excellence, courage, sensitivity, remarkable relationship to time and space". They "are in my view, immense qualities" - she added.

Even at the stage of the University's creation in 2010, an ambitious goal was chosen – to become the best corporate university in the world. "Over the past 10 years, there have been powerful changes in the global economy and business, while the value of the University and its role in the implementation of the company's strategy is constantly growing," said Dmitry Shakhanov, Deputy General Director of Russian Railways, and Chairman of the University's Management Board. – I heartily congratulate the University team on this well-deserved victory! Even at the start, we set a high bar for ourselves, and what initially seemed too bold has now become a reality. The main thing now is not to stop there, to maintain the pace of development, because the company sets more and more important and responsible tasks for the Corporate University! »

The Corporate University of Russian Railways became not only the winner of the highest award, but also the first representative of the world transport industry who won this category in the entire history of the contest.
