The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, and in collaboration with the University of Malaga (UMA), has delivered an online workshop on stock markets with the goal of teaching students the main keys of the equity market and how to trade stocks.
This training initiative, organized in four 3-hour sessions, is addressed to undergraduate students of the Faculty of Economic and Business Science, and it has a clearly practical approach.
The sessions have been delivered by the Head of Financial Education at Grupo Unicaja, José Antonio Díaz Campos, and the students have received information on topics related to the equity market, such as profitability, risk, valuation and how to trade stocks. Later, the participants have applied the concepts they have learnt through several practical exercises.
Among other topics, the students have also learnt about the assets traded on the stock market, the different variables with an impact on the share price and yield, risks and costs of investing in stock markets and an overview of corporate financial statements.
The Edufinet Project, with 15 years of history, is one of the pioneering financial education programmes in Spain. It currently collaborates with 16 universities and with more than ten institutions and business organizations.
