The article focuses on defence contractor BAE Systems PLC. Number of employees employed in the company are 120,000. The firm, which was born out of the 1999 merger of British Aerospace PLC and Marconi Electronic Systems, handles a daunting range of large-scale, high-tech projects, from building aircraft carriers to developing missile-guidance systems. Since the end of the 1990s, the firm's approach to training has changed radically because of its introduction of a virtual corporate university for all types of staff development. The university is managed by a team of 20, each a specialist in one particular knowledge area such as manufacturing or e-learning. Furthermore, eventually, BAE intends the university to become the sole route for the purchasing of training, which will not only reduce costs, but give the firm greater control over the quality of training.
