Description Expanding corporate training departments to degree granting institutions may distract corporations from their primary business functions. This paper provides arguments for corporations to resist the trend to elevate corporate training departments to the status of corporate universities. These programs are costly in terms of physical and human resources, without adding value to the firm beyond what is provided by traditional universities. In addition, such corporate degrees are not likely to be as valuable to firms, nor to degree recipients, as degrees from traditional universities
