International Corporate University Certification
Achieve Special Recognition for the Performance
Management of your Existing or New Corporate University
or Academy





G-ACUA International Corporate University Certification is a statement of success to show that your corporate university development reaches a world-class professional standard in learning and organisational development.

Using an established appraisal framework, G-ACUA Certification is a seal of quality and learning leadership for your corporate university or academy. G-ACUA Certification is a public acknowledgement of your company's commitment to further development and gives credit to the organisation for the important contribution that you have made to continuing strategic development.


Levels of Certification

There are 2 levels of recognition:



Gold Level

For a new corporate university development which achieves a high level structure, coverage and quality


Platinum Level

For existing corporate universities with a proven record of success and impact within their organisation and beyond.


The Certification Process

  • Contact G-ACUA to start the registration for the certification process.

  • An accredited G-ACUA Auditor will review your organisation's corporate university or academy using a comprehensive assessment framework to ensure that all the required standards of excellence have been met.

    The review framework is based on the Corporate University Blueprint, G-ACUA’s flagship development toolkit. The Blueprint has been created as a Professional Management Process Review Framework. Each decision element is examined, not as a new build application, but as a means of reviewing your existing professional management of the total process.

  • This review will then be presented to you. If there are any issues arising, these will be discussed and steps can be taken to ensure that performance standards can be raised.

  • Once it has been confirmed that all aspects of the corporate university meet the standards required by a successful organisation, we will present to you your G-ACUA Corporate University Certification.

  • The Certification lasts for two years, after which time a further review can be carried out to ensure that the Corporate University standards are maintained.  



Companies applying for G-ACUA Corporate University Certification should be current Corporate Members of G-ACUA. Further information on G-ACUA membership can be found here.

For the initial Certification Review, carried out by an accredited G-ACUA Auditor, costs vary according to company size, starting at £1600.
In order to ensure that standards are maintained, the Certification is renewed every 2 years. A subsequent review fee will be charged, starting at a further £1600, depending on the company size.
