Openbank and ESADE are offering 100 Openbank Investment Skills ESADE Scholarships for students, young professionals and those interested in the world of investment from Germany, Argentina, Spain, the Netherlands and Portugal.
The aim is to promote and develop the students' skills and apply them to stock markets, enabling them to take a qualitative leap in their professional career to enhance their employability and boost their knowledge of investment.
The course provides students with the tools to recognise assets and their risk and return profile; understand how stock markets operate and identify investment opportunities. It also enables them to enhance their knowledge of economic cycles to build an investment portfolio.
The training course, which can be completed in Spanish and English, lasts 8 weeks and follows the “Learning by Doing” methodology, which merges theory and practice with learning techniques and tools geared towards real-life professional scenarios.
