Overview

Here's what business leaders are saying about Corporate Unversities.

"Jeanne Meister has nailed the concept of a great quality corporate univeristy."- Skip LeFauve, Senior Vice President, President GM University, General Motors Corporation.

"The growth in the number of 'corporate universities' is one more sign of the information age in which learning has become a lifelong commitment. Conventional colleges and universities are changing as a result, as are corporate learning strategies. We need to learn to know each other better. Jeanne Meister's book will help start that process." - Stanley O. Ikenberry, President, American Council on Education.

"As the millennium approaches, corporations will increasingly take a closer inventory of their learning organizations and the manner in which they share and distribute knowledge. Jeanne Meister's book will help you prepare for this new day in corporate learning...by learning from numerous organizations who have already begun the journey." - Patrica Parker, President, SBC Center for Learning.

"Jeanne Meister has redefined the territory of corporate sector education and training. She gives a unique insight into the explosion of interest in corporate universities and their impact on the quality of corporate relations with universities, colleges, and learning centers. Anyone who is seriously interested in how corporation will be investing in education and training in the next few years should read this book." - Kitty Chisolm, Director of Development, The Open University.

"Jeanne C. Meister takes the reader step by step to point the full scope of how corporations are becoming educators of the workforce. This book is required reading for all those who believe that education is a first class investment that improves productivity and adds value to their organizations." - Luis E. Giusti, Chariman and CEO, Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A.
