In particular, this initiative, developed in four sessions, has focused on economic macro-magnitudes, variable income and other investment products.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, is a financial education programme pioneering in Spain, which collaborates with 14 universities and more than ten institutions and business organizations.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has carried out, together with the University of Malaga (UMA), a course on financial education aimed at the elderly, covering different economic and financial topics.

 

Divided into four sessions, the recently held course ‘Financial Education for the Elderly’ has allowed the participants to continue with, or even start, studies related to economics and, thus, to have a clearer view of the world of economics and finance.

 

In particular, this initiative, developed in collaboration with the University of Malaga, has focused on economic macro-magnitudes, variable income and other investment products.

 

During these four sessions, the course has covered basic topics of financial education and the Edufinet Project, such as variable income, profitability, risk, assessment, quotation and related factors, as well as key figures to analyze a company and the corresponding financial information sources. The course has included as well the development of two practical cases.

 

With regard to macro-magnitudes, the following have been studied: economic cycle, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), components of aggregate demand, the labour market, productivity, savings, balance of payment, inflation or interest and exchange rates and, finally, questions related to methods of payment and financial products for saving (fixed income, investment funds, pension plans, etc.).

 

Edufinet develops since 2018 the Lectures on Financial Education for Adults, which have allowed the project to extend its target audience, composed so far mainly by Secondary Education, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training students.

 

Indeed, the magazine Actualidad Económica awarded Edufinet in December the second prize on Financial Education for these Lectures on Financial Education for Adults, in the category of +65.

 

Edufinet Project

 

The Edufinet Project launched in 2007 its Internet portal, promoted by Unicaja and with the collaboration of the International University of Andalusia (Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, UNIA).

 

However, the development of the project began in 2005 within Unicaja, which became one of the first institutions in Spain in promoting an initiative of this kind. Currently, 14 universities and more than ten business institutions and organizations collaborate with this project.

 

During its nearly 15 years of history, more than 127,600 people have participated directly in the different conferences, workshops and lectures organized. The website www.edufinet.com has received so far more than 7.6 million visits, with consults and access from over 180 countries.
