Deloitte launches university for Europe, MEA
Brussels, December 17, 2013
Deloitte has launched a new university for Europe, the Middle East and Africa to help staff - and ultimately clients - navigate market changes and stay on the leading edge of learning and innovation.
Located in Belgium, the Deloitte University Europe, the Middle East and Africa (DU EMEA) builds on the success of Deloitte University (DU) launched two years ago in Westlake, Texas which has been attended by more than 50,000 people from over 70 countries.
Its curriculum is tailored to the region's needs to deliver cutting-edge learning that will develop the next generation of international business leaders and advisers.
An example of the innovation and learning the university will deliver is the Deloitte Client Experience Labs, which also opened today at the DU EMEA facility.
Along with the learning programs delivered at DU EMEA, the Lab will provide a semi-permanent environment for clients and staff to collaborate on innovative approaches to address complex business problems. Lab sessions will incorporate the use of expert facilitation, tailored engagement techniques, a flexible physical design space, and collaborative technologies.
"Deloitte University is more than a physical location--it represents the global expansion of a different, and we think better, way of doing business. As a professional services organization, we need smart, well-trained people to serve our clients across borders. Deloitte professionals are the greatest asset we have, and we're committed to investing in them and developing them as leaders," said Barry Salzberg, Global CEO of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL).
"We launched the first DU in the U.S. two years ago. In that short time it's become successful beyond our highest expectations. This second university builds on that success and satisfies a need in Europe, the Middle East and Africa," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
