Exploring the Corporate University Phenomenon
Wang, Greg G.; Sun, Judy Y.; Li, Jessica J.; Qiao, Xuejun
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
This study explores the corporate university (CU) phenomenon based on human capital theory through a comprehensive review of literatures in economics and HRD (human resource development). Different from existing CU literature, the study found that, as HRD operational entities, CUs and traditional universities are rooted in different skills contexts, and that theorizing the CU phenomenon is to theorizing HRD. The study explores an alternative model to understand the CU phenomenon. Implications to HRD research are also discussed. (Contains 2 figures.)
