  • Nineteen students have completed 90 hours of additional training and will now begin internships in companies around the region
  • This is the second Comex foreign trade course promoted by Dualiza Bankia in the province of Granada after the one in Motril

Dualiza Bankia, the brand of the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training through which it carries out activities to promote Vocational Training, and the City Council of Granada completed the Comex foreign trade course taught to unemployed people in the province this Wednesday. Now begins a period of internships in companies of the industry around the region.

Nineteen people, 4 men and 15 women, have complemented their studies with 90 hours of additional training, 60 face-to-face and 30 online, focused on solving practical cases through the Comex Bankia Campus.

During the two months of training they have acquired knowledge about economic and financial management of international trade; they have learned the risks of foreign trade operations and the hedging alternatives in the market, as well as a safe and coherent approach to international expansion.

Bankia’s Regional Director in Andalucía, Joaquín Holgado, said that activities like this "are another example of Bankia’s commitment with the province of Granada and with education". In addition, he stressed that "we are convinced that training is the future of our society; training of students wanting to apply their skills on the job market and entrepreneurs who are seeking specific profiles".

Most of the students come from Vocational Training, but some of them have higher education degrees. Seven of them got a Higher Management and Finance degree and three others were trained as Senior Technician in Business Administration and Management. The rest are graduates in Business, Law, Administration and Business Management, Economics or Marketing, as well as Account Management, Management Information Systems or Bilingual Secretariat.

Now they will carry out non-work professional practices for 150 hours, managed by the Employment Area of the City Council of Granada with at least six companies dedicated to electronics, education, or food, among others.

This is the second Comex foreign trade course taught by Bankia in Granada after the one that ended last year in Motril, in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, the Port and the Education delegation of the Regional Government of Andalusia.

Dualiza Bankia, Bankia’s dual training initiative

Dualiza Bankia is the brand through which the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training carries out all of its promotion and prestige activities regarding vocational training and dual vocational training, keeping in mind that it improves the employability of students and the competitiveness of companies. And it represents the commitment acquired by Bankia to the promotion of education as a way to improve society, combat inequality and promote greater social cohesion.
