The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has organized for the second consecutive year, in collaboration with the University of Jaen (UJA), a workshop to teach students how the stock market works and how to trade stocks.

 

This training initiative, which has been organized in two sessions at the campuses that the UJA has in the city of Jaen and in Linares, has been attended by nearly 100 students, which have information about basic concepts, mainly related to the stock market, as well as on profitability, risk, valuation and stock trading.

 

Among other topics, students have learnt about exchange trade securities, the different variables which have an effect on the quotation of shares and their performance, investing costs and an overview of taxation.

 

Unicaja’s Edufinet Project is one of the first financial education projects pioneering in Spain. It collaborates with over twenty universities, institutions and business organizations, and its work has received several awards.

 

Edufinet Project

 

The Edufinet Project launched in 2007 its Internet portal for the general public, fostered by Unicaja, with the collaboration of the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía (UNIA) and of the University of Malaga (UMA), although the development of the project began in 2005 within Unicaja.

 

In addition to more than ten business organizations and institutions, 14 universities participate in this project, which has made Unicaja, one of the first financial institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this type, to be one of the most active agents in this area.

 

During its trajectory, it has received several awards, and more than 146,600 people have participated in the different conferences, workshops and lectures developed, of which 108,000 have participated through the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People.

 

Edufinet promotes as well workshops and lectures at universities, summer courses or participation in international projects. It also fosters several publications, such as the ‘Financial Guide’ or the ‘Financial Guide for business owners and entrepreneurs’.

 

The website www.edufinet.com, which offers systematic and practical information in a question-answer format and where no previous knowledge is required, has received so far more than 7.8 million visits, with access from 180 countries.

 

Edufinet offers two additional specific portals: one on financial education for young people (Edufinext) and another one addressed to businessmen and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp).
