Corporate University

Corporate education and human resources management are of great importance under the current conditions of business development. Intense competition, multiple objectives and lack of time require application of up-to-date tools in human resources management. One of such tools used in PJSC TATNEFT is a Corporate e-University founded in 2011. It is an innovative educational resource facilitating continuous professional development of specialists using advanced educational forms and technologies.

Main objectives of the Corporate e-University include intellectual and professional development of employees, identification and selection of talented specialists into the Company’s candidate pool, cooperation with higher educational establishments in the field of distance training of would-be specialists of the Company, professional adaptation of young specialists, and work with schoolchildren in the field of professional orientation.

The major advantage of the corporate e-University is its strict adherence to the Company’s goals. Due to the fact that theoretical, practical and training courses are developed by the Company’s leading specialists, the students of the Corporate e-University study in accordance with the development strategy of PJSC TATNEFT.

The Corporate e-University continues developing and expanding its educational base. Presently, the corporate e-University offers over 20 educational, training and practical courses, as well as several creative projects.
