Santander Universities promotes the "Cologne Summer Schools"

Mönchengladbach, July 26th, 2016. The University of Cologne is organizing its fourth international project “Cologne Summer Schools”, with over 50 Students from all over the world.

Gudrun Gersmann, Vice-Rector for International Affairs at the University of Cologne and Oliver Burda, Deputy CEO Santander Consumer Bank in Germany attended the ceremony held at the University of Cologne.

Over 30 international students and alumni will be trained this summer by a team of experts of the most prestigious scientific institutions of the Cologne University in the fields of Ages, Social Inequality, Migration, and Intercultural Educational Research among others.

Over two dozen of students will attend simultaneously and for the first time a three short-term program with interdisciplinary and internationality topics such as "Multidisciplinary Ageing Research", "Social inequality and intercultural education", "Serendipias: migración como oportunidad".

The courses began on July, 25th and are given in various languages depending on the program and are primarily directed to students from partner universities. "Cologne Summer Schools are thus not only for the participants a gain, but also they greatly contribute to the strengthening of partnerships and exchanges between universities" explained Viktoria Busch, Vice-Rector of the University of Cologne. (http://colognesummerschools.uni-koeln.de).

All topics and programs are of great relevance for today's societies, which are characterized by demo-graphic change and increasing social and cultural diversity worldwide. Although our societies are getting older, we know very little about how we can active, successful and healthy aging and how age-related diseases can be treated successfully. In this regard, Oliver Burda stated that “ageing - that means demographic change - will bring about challenges and opportunities to many parts of society, including the banking sector.”

In fact, Banco Santander is developing initiatives related to the promotion of a culture of enterprise and innovation, university digitalization, internationalization and employability. As we can see once more in these programs, Internationalization includes international mobility scholarships, exchange programs and transversal cooperation projects between institutions from various countries.

Banco Santander, through Santander Universities, ranks the top 'Global Fortune 500' list as the company that invests the most in Corporate Social Responsibility in connection with education, according to the first global study published by the Varkey Foundation in collaboration with UNESCO.
