EOCCS certification was granted to Sberbank Corporate University


We are delighted to announce that two online courses Compliance and New Economy ran by Sberbank Corporate University have been awarded the EOCCS certification.

EOCCS provides an international quality benchmark in diverse education landscapes whereby digital technology is applied to teaching and learning. EOCCS gives online courses within universities, business schools, corporate learning organisations, and public agencies a top international quality benchmark in the online learning landscape, strengthening not only their market positioning but also allowing for critical self-reflection and peer assessment.

Students taking courses from EOCCS certified institutions, whether they come from a MOOCs platform or directly from their school or whether they are higher education or corporate, can be ensured that they will boost up their career prospects with courses that are officially recognised and professionally relevant.

“We are happy to get our programs certified by the first international quality benchmark for online management-related courses, EFMD Online Course Certification System – EOCCS. In 2016 three Sberbank Corporate University programs were certified by EOCCS, and this year we got certification for all other programs. This is a high assessment of the quality of our educational products, and we pay great attention to it. Every year we carry out monitoring, collect feedback from participants and improve our educational programs. We are very proud of this achievement because it shows that our courses can compete with the world’s best practices,” says Valeria Zabolotnaya, Dean of Sberbank Corporate University.

Sberbank Corporate University (SCU) has created a robust learning platform and pursues its strategic objective of developing an ecosystem, in which SCU functions as a hub in the educational market that contributes to the bank’s business development by educating its partners.

Keith Pond, EOCCS Director, praised the institution by saying: “Congratulations to Sberbank Corporate University for the tremendous work they put into the development of their online provisions. We would like to highlight the excellent design of the “Compliance” and “New Economy” course content and the presence of a variety of synchronous and asynchronous assessment elements. Both the courses continuously improve by taking into account the students’ needs and observations.”

EOCCS has currently 101 certified courses from 21 institutions in 12 countries.
