This training activity, organized in 10 sessions, has provided students of the UNED, the University of Malaga (UMA) and the general public with basic knowledge on finances, so that they can act autonomously in that field.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, is one of the first financial projects in Spain and it currently collaborates with over twenty universities, institutions and business organizations. Its work to improve the financial literacy of citizens has received several awards.

 

Nearly 200 students have participated in the third edition of the course ‘Making financial decisions in your personal life’, organized, in collaboration with the Distance University (UNED-Málaga), by the Edufinet Project, a programme promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja. Most of the participants have chosen the online modality to follow the contents of each session, whereas those who preferred the onsite format attended the lessons at the Centro Asociado ‘María Zambrano’ of the UNED in Malaga.

 

This training activity, organized in 10 sessions of two hours each, has provided students of the UNED, the University of Malaga (UMA) and the general public with basic knowledge on finances, so that they can act autonomously in that field.

 

The course has focused on the different financial products –covering investments and loans- and their taxation, associated financial calculations and practical applications in the current market.

 

The organization of this course falls within the collaboration agreement entered into between the Edufinet Project, UNED and UMA to improve the financial literacy of citizens. For that purpose, it explains essential variables to take into account when making a financial decision in your personal life.

 

In particular, the third edition of this course has covered topics such as the financial system and its legal framework, the family budget, economic and financial indicators, deposits and payment methods, variable and fixed income, investment funds, insurances, loans, taxation of financial transactions, and practical exercises and calculations.

 

Proyecto Edufinet, a pioneering initiative

 

The Edufinet Project launched in 2007 its Internet portal for the general public, fostered by Unicaja, although its development began in 2005. 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. This work has been recognized with several awards.

 

Since then, more than 146,600 people have participated in the different conferences, workshops and lectures developed by Edufinet, of which 108,000 have participated through the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People.

 

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).
