Through the scholarship program “Crece con nosotros,” MAPFRE offered over 1000 scholarships to young students around the world in 2015.
A young student, enrolled in any university, business school or academic institution with which MAPFRE has an agreement in Spain, or in any other country in which the company is present, is the profile of the over 1000 scholarship recipients who interned at MAPFRE in 2015, and made contact with the business world. All of these scholarships are paid and each student has a tutor who performs personalized follow-up of their learning.
Through a global scholarship program, called “Crece con nosotros” (“Grow with us”), the company allows students to complement their academic education with business training, therefore learning first-hand about the reality of the business world. This way, they can obtain a paid scholarship in coming years at any of the over 5500 offices that MAPFRE has around the world.
In Spain specifically, a total of 363 spaces were offered in 2015, aimed at students of universities and academic centers with which MAPFRE has collaboration agreements, to undertake internships in different departments (Departments of Finance, Auditing, Actuarial, Commercial, Communications, Human Resources, etc.).
The largest number of spaces offered was in Spain, followed by Turkey where a total of 111 students interned at MAPFRE, while in Mexico there were almost 100, and 82 in Colombia.
Also, in its commitment to contribute to the integration of people with disabilities into the work force, MAPFRE destined 2 percent of the scholarship spaces to this group.
MAPFRE actively collaborates with the university world, and therefore it holds agreements with over 500 institutions around the globe. In Spain alone it collaborates with over 200 universities and educational centers, among which are the most prestigious universities such as the Autonomous University of Madrid, the Technical University of Madrid, Pompeu Fabra University, the Complutense University of Madrid, the University of Alcalá and the Autonomous University of Barcelona, as well as business schools such as ESADE and IESE.
