Apple University is Apple's internal educational and training department led by vice president and dean Joel Poldony. Started in 2008 by Apple's late co-founder, Steve Jobs, the goal of Apple University is to pass along the business history and corporate culture of Apple, particularly to new generations of management and to people joining Apple as the result of acquisitions.

The City Center, inside Apple's Cupertino headquarters, is home to Apple University. It's run year-round and consists of instructors, writers, and editors who prepare, package, and teach the materials. They come from educational institutions like Harvard and MIT and Berkley and Stanford. Some work full time at Apple while others split time working at their universities as well.

Employees can sign up for courses using Apple's internal website and subjects include "Communicating at Apple", "What Makes Apple, Apple", and "The Best Things".
