BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwired) - 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.

EFMD is delighted to announce that Repsol has recently received CLIP accreditation and joins the CLIP community which also includes: Akademie Deutscher Genossenschaften ADG; Alcatel-Lucent; Allianz SE; ArcelorMittal; BBVA - Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria; EDF Group; Gas Natural Fenosa; GDF SUEZ University; Grupo Santander; Mazars University; MLP Finanzdienstleistungen AG; Novartis International AG; PSA Peugeot Citroën; Siemens AG; Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd & UniCredit Group.

"We feel very proud to have been welcomed into the CLIP community, it has been a great experience. The whole CSF team was very committed to this endeavour, and it proved well worth it. The process has given us the opportunity to build an overall assessment of our activity and share it with other crucial members of Repsol: executives, internal teachers, students, business partners, and vendors, to name a few. I would like to thank the EFMD team and our peers for their support and valuable contribution. The feedback report itself serves as a robust strategic view of the issues we need to work on as top priorities in the near future. We now feel we are ready to embark upon a new, and even more challenging stage," said Maria Jesus Blasco Blanco, Director of Learning, Repsol.

The CLIP assessment process covers all the essential dimensions of the corporate university's deployment within the company. The initiative draws extensively on EFMD's successful EQUIS accreditation scheme for business schools and universities and starts with an internal self-assessment against a set of rigorous standards that have drawn up by leading members of the corporate learning community, followed by an external review by experienced peers.

Richard Straub, Director of Corporate Services who leads the CLIP process at EFMD believes the whole experience delivers a great deal of added value to an organisation. "In the past corporate universities and training centres have either flourished or failed because of how they are perceived internally. Gaining CLIP accreditation has helped to establish the credibility and internal recognition of the corporate university and gives a corporate university something tangible it can show to its board."
