Moscow, July 15, 2019. AO UniCredit Bank hosted at its headquarters in Moscow a group of Master students from ESCI*-UPF and the BSM** schools within the University of Pompeu Fabra (UPF), which is one of the most renowned public universities in Spain. Every year, the students of the Master of Science International Business program visit different countries to learn about the opportunities each holds in terms of business and investment. This year 26 students from 16 countries came to Moscow. As part of their visit, they expressed a desire to visit the office and get acquainted with one of the largest Russian banks with foreign capital - UniCredit Bank.
Representatives of the Bank gave talks to the students related to the Russian economy, UniCredit Bank and the UniCredit Group, and also shared their experience in mid-market business and sales instruments of the financial market.
“It is an honor for UniCredit Bank to welcome graduates of the Department of Economics and Business of the University of Pompeu Fabra, which was recognized by the European Commission as one of the major European centers for economic research. We have extensive experience cooperating with leading Russian universities telling their students about our business and attracting them to our internships. We are particularly pleased that an international group of students chose UniCredit Bank to familiarize themselves with the progressive practices and standards of credit institutions in Russia,” comments Valentin Timakov, Director of Human Resources at UniCredit Bank
“The business trip offers our Master of Science in International Business students the opportunity to perform a series of activities abroad to gather knowledge about the implementation of business in foreign countries. This year we chose to visit Russia as its economy has a vast market and an even more extensive area of influence with thriving business opportunities. Many Russian companies have implemented innovative solutions to their business activities and are technologically very advanced. We are grateful to UniCredit Bank for receiving our students and giving them such insightful talks on the operations and services of the bank across its different divisions,” comments Dr. Mercè Roca, Director of the MSc in International Business of ESCI-UPF and the BSM of Pompeu Fabra University.
