Santander Universities UK extends partnership with Cambridge Judge Business School (Disponible solo en inglés)

Cambridge Jugde Business School

London, 06 February 2015-. As part of the City Speakers Series of the Master of Finance (MFin) programme at Cambridge Judge, Steve Pateman, Executive Director and Head of UK Banking at Santander, spoke at the School on “The Economy and the Role of Banking.”

Extending a partnership with Cambridge Judge Business School, the Bank, through Santander Universities, has agreed to fund new visiting Fellows over the next three years and a new SME Growth Club to help British enterprises develop their management and processes to enable growth.

The partnership also includes cooperation on seminars, conferences and other projects.

The new UK SME Growth Club, which will launch in upcoming months, will engage with 10 small-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) from the Cambridge cluster, elsewhere in East Anglia and London. Each participating company will be visited by a member of the Cambridge Judge faculty to assess their needs, and then action plans will be developed to tackle strategic challenges.

The aim of the Club is to significantly enhance the performance and competitiveness of the companies by developing their managerial capability, setting attainable objectives and monitoring progress through key performance indicators.

Santander will also fund a Santander Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Cambridge Judge, enabling academic visitors in business and finance to spend time at Cambridge University and provide a lecture and seminar series. This extends a partnership agreement signed in 2008 through Santander Universities, which has benefited the School’s students and academics through funding for Fellows, scholarships, entrepreneurial activities and other projects.

Steve Pateman said: “Judge consistently ranks as one of the top business schools in the country and we are delighted to be partnering with the school. We hope that our collaboration will make a difference in the local community supporting local SMEs and ultimately generating wealth.”

Cambridge University is among universities across the UK which benefit from scholarships provided under the Santander Universities SME Internship Programme. For each participating university, the programme offers 25 scholarships of £1,500 each to benefit current or recently graduated students who do a three-month paid internship with an SME.

Santander Universities maintains a stable alliance with close to 1,200 academic institutions in 20 countries. This is a network where universities from all over the world can meet and engage in dialogue. More information: www.santander.com/universities

Santander Universities was introduced in the UK in 2007 and the bank is already collaborating with 77 British Universities and Higher Education Institutions, with agreements focused in promoting international exchange, entrepreneurial activities and the mobility of students and researchers within the network.
