The Lufthansa School of Business, Germany’s first corporate university, has received another prestigious award for having the best leadership development programme in an international comparison. It was singled out for its innovative method of measuring learning achievement and demonstrating the value that corporate training creates for the company.
More than 200 globally active companies took part in the survey conducted by the US market research and consulting company Corporate University Xchange. The Lufthansa School of Business received the “Exemplary Practice Award” in Orlando, Florida.
Corporate University Xchange honours companies that set worldwide standards in staff devel-opment and training. Lufthansa impressed the jury with its “explorers V” development pro-gramme, in which participants deal with a wide range of projects within the Lufthansa Group. The programme reflects Lufthansa’s investment in corporate training and the economic returns it generates for the company.
The Lufthansa School of Business has received several awards from Corporate University Xchange in recent years, gaining first place in three out of seven categories. In 2000 it was named the Best European Corporate University. In 2005 Lufthansa gained a prize for aligning corporate learning with business strategy, and in 2006 it earned an award for its innovative collaboration with external learning partners.
