Coming up with the latest and greatest learning curriculum for employees year after year can be overwhelming--especially if one works for a small or mid-size company with minimal resources. Fortunately, there is a burgeoning trend that three-time No. 1 Top 125er PwC is helping to "open" up. In creating PwC Open University, the professional services firm has opened up its vault of training materials, including 150 courses, a growing number of which are CPE accredited. The courseware includes material on asset management, banking and capital markets, health industries, IFRS, industrial products, retail and consumer, risk and compliance, tax services, and technology. The curriculum is organized by topic and delivered via Webcast, podcast, or e-learning platform. The firm intends to continue building the library of courses available through PwC Open University, which can be accessed at In this article, Tom Evans, PwC partner and chief learning officer, gives an overview of how the firm's open university works, and why PwC decided to do it.
