Over the past few years, corporate universities, as they are called, have become increasingly common. Independent of this, strategy process theory is also finding a place in international management research. In this paper, it will be shown that strategy process theory demonstrates an affinity with the concept of the corporate university. A survey of the 1,000 largest German companies for the “Federal Ministry of Education and Research” is examining for the first time how widespread corporate universities are in Germany and how they are organized. On the basis of this empirical data it will be shown to what extent the concept of the corporate university in practice is in line with the theoretical findings of strategy process theory.
