The Corporate University has completed the certification of the Global Council of Corporate Universities

The GlobalCCU (The Global Council of Corporate Universities) certification confirms that the development of human capital in the Russian Railways holding meets the highest requirements of the international level.

The Corporate University of Russian Railways was one of the first in Russia to support the global experience of passing the assessment of compliance of its activities with international standards and today is the only holder of the active GlobalCCU certificate in our country.

Passing the certification has become a real exam for the corporate education system in the Russian Railways holding. Great work was carried out during 6 months, as a result of which a detailed analytical report was compiled and more than 100 supporting annexes to it were prepared. The GlobalCCU Expert Commission, with the personal participation of the Chairman of the Global Council, Annick Renaud-Coulon, visited the Russian Railways Corporate University twice within six months. In addition, all this time, the University team interacted with the experts online. On November 6-7, the final visit was held, during which the University was comprehensively evaluated in 18 areas, covering various aspects of its activities: academic strategy, organizational and economic management, the quality of the learning process and programmes, their compliance with modern management trends, and many others.

One of the important certification criteria are the applicability of the knowledge and skills acquired by the learners, the focus of the programmes on solving real business challenges of the company, openness to customers and partners, as well as the focus of the Corporate University on creating a modern ecosystem of business education. GlobalCU experts highly appreciated the fact that the final review meeting of the University was attended by the management of JSC "Russian Railways", heads of departments of the Company, graduates, as well as representatives of Russian railway transport universities.

Roman Baskin, Director of the Corporate University of Russian Railways, noted that passing the international certification provided an opportunity to show the international professional community the results of ten years of systematic work of the Russian Railways management, the Company's social and personnel unit and the Corporate University to create a high-quality and effective system of personnel development: "The experts of the GlobalCCU emphasized that one of the strengths of corporate education in Russian Railways is close interaction between the Company's top management and the University. This competitive advantage has contributed to obtaining a reputable international certification, which confirms that corporate learning at the Russian Railways holding is one of the best in Russia and the world. Undoubtedly, passing the certification is a new joint achievement of the Russian Railways team and the Corporate University. We thank the managers of Russian Railways, the HR Department, the Department for Employment, Remuneration, and Motivation, the Department of Economic Conjuncture and Strategic Development, the Central Directorate of Infrastructure, as well as the Russian Academy of Railways of the Russian University of Transport for their involvement, support and personal participation in working with GlobalCCU experts".

Passing the certification opens up wide opportunities for the Russian Railways Corporate University and its learners. Using the best practices of corporate universities and business schools from more than 50 countries-members of GlobalCCU - will make the programmes for Russian Railways employees even more high-quality, interesting and useful. In addition, the certification will affect the expansion of cooperation with Russian Railways' foreign partners, including through the implementation of joint educational programmes with railway companies.
