Founded in 2000 and present in 20 countries, Universia has had Banco Santander's support from the outset, becoming the world's largest university cooperation network.
“We want to be a sustainable platform for non-financial services, to be useful, and to become the bank of choice for university students” Javier Roglá, global head of Santander Universities and CEO of Universia.
Universia's main lines of action entail academic guidance, digital transformation and employment.
We give access to accurate and quality information, linking guidance and employment. This makes us unique and relevant at decisive movements for students' professional future.
Access is available to specialised educational advice, focused on the information needs that may arise, ranging from what to study and where to study it, to the job prospects associated with each alternative.
We produce more than 4,700 items a year of content focused on academic guidance (e.g. scholarships, job offers, specialisation courses, degrees with higher rates of employability) so that users have all the information they need in the same space, making it easier to perform searches and enhancing their experience.
We want to be the Ibero American benchmark for digital management of young talent, reinforcing our position as an integrating agent between universities, companies and youth.
And create the largest community of professional guidance, internships and employment services for youth in Ibero America, strengthening their candidacies across seven countries and providing them with qualified job offers for a successful immersion in the labour market.
Students and youth from Ibero America will multiply their job opportunities by accessing offers without geographical barriers to talent mobility; increase their connection to companies and universities to better match profiles and needs, and receive Universia's guidance and online & offline support for a successful transition to the professional world.
Lastly, we accompany universities in their digital transformation processes, helping them to promote action plans and identifying their needs, while sharing best practices to promote innovation and digital transformation.
The goal is to improve the life of the university community in various countries and enable adaptation to new demands and a constantly changing environment of digital culture and rapidly evolving technology.
