The Corporate Learning Improvement Process (CLIP) is a unique accreditation run by EFMD that focuses on identifying the key factors that determine quality in the design and functioning of corporate universities and learning organisations.

We are delighted to announce that ArcelorMittal University has been successfully re-accredited by CLIP.

“ArcelorMittal is very proud of having received a full 5-year re-accreditation. We are happy with the recognition of the strengths of ArcelorMittal University, its functional academies and regional campuses.  We are equally happy with the identification of the points we can further improve, fully in line with the CLIP philosphy. The process has shown its value again and we in particular appreciate the quality of the review process by colleagues that are experienced experts in learning and development in a truly global company,” commented Christian Standaert, General Manager at the ArcelorMittal University.

Martin Moehrle, Associate Director, Corporate Services, who leads the CLIP process at EFMD, added: “EFMD is very pleased that ArcelorMittal University (AMU) has successfully gone through CLIP re-accreditation. We were particularly impressed by ArcelorMittal’s dedication and excellence in managing its talent pipeline and AMU’s contribution to accelerate its growth, by AMU’s resilience in difficult times, by its ability to engage a highly-fragmented community of learning professionals, by the quality and the management of its external partners, and the quality of participant selection and management. We congratulate AMU for this achievement and look forward to their continued contribution to the CLIP community.”

The CLIP assessment process covers all the essential dimensions of the corporate university’s deployment within the company: the alignment of its mission and operational objectives with corporate strategy, the effectiveness of its governance and internal management systems, its ability to address key issues of concern to the business units, the programme design process, the overall coherence of the programme portfolio, the quality of delivery and the impact of the corporate university’s activities upon individual and organisational learning.

Internal self assessment against a set of rigorous standards drawn up by leading members of the corporate learning community is combined with external review by experienced peers.
