Mazars University re-accredited by CLIP

We are delighted to announce that Mazars University (MU) has recently received the EFMD Corporate Learning Improvement Process (CLIP) re-accreditation.

CLIP’s comprehensive framework incorporates a broad view of Corporate Learning & Development, including all relevant stakeholders of the learning function, as well as covering all essential strategic and operational aspects related to managing learning and talent development within a corporate context.

The purpose of the CLIP review is to acknowledge a Corporate Learning function’s achievements, and at the same time to make constructive suggestions for quality improvement and future development toward excellence in learning and talent development.

‘EFMD is recognised globally as the accreditation body for management institutions, namely business schools, with EQUIS, and corporate universities, with CLIP. Clearly, receiving validation from peers who count among the most prominent players in the field of management education is a great accomplishment. But ultimately, this accreditation serves to confirm our core belief: education should be the backbone of any modern talent acquisition, management, and development strategy,’ says Laurent Choain, Chief People, Education & Culture at Mazars.

Over the years, Mazars has created a unique learning ecosystem fostering education, co-creation, contribution, and profit going way beyond the mere business transaction. Lifelong learning is critical at MU and is one of the main components of its HR Policy. The core activating principle being ‘no career progression without education and no education without career progression’ formulated by Laurent Choain, Chief People, Education & Culture at Mazars. Such policies are made possible thanks to affordable programme costs and excellent programme quality. With this approach, MU is truly leveraging its learning ecosystem.

Congratulating Mazars University on its recent success, Martin Moehrle, Director of Corporate Services, who leads the CLIP process at EFMD, commented: ‘EFMD is delighted that Mazars University has successfully gone through the CLIP re-accreditation process. We were impressed by MU’s organisational culture, acting as a glue in binding people and organisation together, by top management’s strong support for learning and education and by MU’s success in developing experts into future leaders. Congratulations to the whole team for their work and this achievement. We are looking forward to MU’s continued contribution to the CLIP community.’
