Corporate University is an important tool for developing the sustainable project culture of the organization taking into account the interests of various internal and external stakeholders. Moreover, the Corporate University is a best place to organize a constructive dialogue between these stakeholders and ensure a balance of their interests. An innovative model of development of sustainable IBS project culture is based on the principles, corresponding to the main streams of company's replenishment of Project Manager's staff-by trainees, consultants, and professional Project Managers, coming from other companies. The paper presents main components of the IBS Corporate University Programme-from training of Master students on the position of a graduate employee (trainee), till coaching for the Project Directors; from the study of the Project Management methodology, till practical case studies, formed on the basis of real projects.
