BMW Group’s initiative “¿Te gusta aprender?“ celebrates first graduating class
On 29 September 2014, the BMW Group celebrated the graduation of its first “¿Te gusta aprender?” class. The initiative was launched last October by the BMW Group, aimed at improving young Spaniards’ prospects on the labour market.
The 27 young Spaniards selected from more than 5,000 applicants were honoured in an official ceremony at BMW Welt in Munich, in which they received their master’s degree as “Professional Development Expert” from the rector of the University of Alcalá, Fernando Galván, and the director of the University Business Foundation (FUE), Fernando Martínez.
Milagros Caiña Carreiro-Andree, Board of Management member for Human Resources at BMW AG, is delighted with the positive response to the programme: “In many different roles all across the company, our graduates have demonstrated their talent and willingness to assume responsibility for challenging tasks. The programme was a huge success and will be continued in 2015.”
“¿Te gusta aprender?” was initiated by the BMW Group in collaboration with the University of Alcalá and the University Business Foundation (FUE). This unique cooperation provides participants with the opportunity to train at the company’s Munich headquarters during a one-year internship, to expand their employment prospects and gain valuable work experience with an international company.
