Bucharest Stock Exchange signed a cooperation agreement with the West University of Timisoara today, which aims to anchor future generations of students and graduates in the economic reality we live in by facilitating their access to information related to savings, investment, or entrepreneurship.
„Students are increasingly attentive to the operating laws of macroeconomics and the mechanisms of the real economy. Financial culture is more important than ever, and the new graduates that West University trains, especially for future jobs, receive a substantial package of information from the financial field, from now on also through the partnership between UVT and the Bucharest Stock Exchange”, stated Univ. Prof. Dr. Marilen Gabriel PIRTEA, Rector of the West University of Timisoara.
„Through this partnership, we want to lay the foundation for a generation of students knowledgeable in managing their finances. Whether we are talking about the participation of Bucharest Stock Exchange specialists in the courses and conferences organized by the West University of Timisoara, educational workshops, or other special projects that we will run together with the University, we hope that through these, we will equip the students with the information and skills they need to manage their money effectively. Unfortunately, our financial decisions and actions do not have a solid foundation for success without financial education. The development of strategic educational partnerships with universities in the country is one of the priorities of the Bucharest Stock Exchange for the next period.” Adrian TANASE, CEO of Bucharest Stock Exchange.
