Winners are selected by a panel of independent, expert judges from notable organizations including Corning, Inc., Wipro Technologies, ExxonMobil Corp., Plastipak Packaging Inc. and IBM Corp. EMC was named a finalist in four categories: Alliances, Measurement, Technology, and Marketing and selected winner of the “Best Overall Corporate University” award out of over 200 global corporate universities.

This award recognized EMC University for being an integral contributor to EMC’s success through the establishment of a comprehensive and well-executed corporate learning organization.

Brian Powers, Senior Director, EMC University, said “This truly is a unique honor in our field and we want to thank the global EMC University development team for its efforts in developing this leading-edge university.
