Unicaja Banco has renewed its collaboration with the University of Salamanca, continuing with its support to the Friendly Companies Program (Programa de Empresas Amigas), managed by the Fundación General, an institution aimed at establishing permanent links between the University and companies. The agreement has been signed by the Managing Director of the Fundación, Óscar González Benito, and by the Regional Manager of Unicaja Banco, Manuel Rubio.
Unicaja Banco became one of the 27 Friendly Companies of the institution, and it will be present with a stand at the Freshers’ Fair (Feria de Bienvenida) the next academic year.
The Fundación General de la Universidad develops its activities mainly in the areas of continuing training, technological innovation and university employment, as well as the physical presence of the University of Salamanca in Latin America.
The Managing Director of the Fundación General de la Universidad, Óscar Benito, highlighted that this agreement is one more milestone in the effort made by the University of Salamanca to collaborate with its social and business environment.
Manuel Rubio, in the name of Unicaja Banco, remarked that the bank ‘shares the goals of the Fundación, especially those related to technological innovation and university employment’, and offered ‘the bank’s support to those projects which contribute to generate wealth in Salamanca and in the region’.
Collaboration with the University of Salamanca
In addition to this collaboration, Unicaja Banco has entered into other agreements with the University. For the last few years, it collaborates with the Science Park in programmes to promote employment and entrepreneurship initiatives.
After the signing of the agreement with the Fundación, the Regional Manager for Southern Castilla y León has held a business meeting at the premises of the University of Salamanca to boost the bank’s lending activity.
