Publish date: 12 May 2022

UniCredit is pleased to launch the UniCredit University, with the first pilot programme, UniCredit University Italy, in Turin. Following this, UniCredit University will then be rolled out across all of UniCredit's markets, ensuring that all employees are empowered to develop their professional skills and adapt to an everchanging world.

UniCredit University is designed to enable all partcipants to unlock their full potential and ability, learning critical skills that will support them in their career for the long-term. With a focus on both re-skilling and upskilling participants, it will build a workforce that is agile, resilient and fit for the future. The programme will leverage UniCredit's existing relationships with world-class institutions to provide the very best teaching and learning facilities. It has been designed and developed in collaboration with Luiss Business School and will offer over 100 different learning paths to employees.

"Through UniCredit University, we are continuing to invest in our people by further enhancing our educational offerings through a personalised approach to learning and professional development, applying the best methodologies and leveraging our collective know-how so we can continue to empower both our people, and our communities, to progress." says Andrea Orcel Group CEO of UniCredit. "I am delighted that we have been able to launch our University pilot in Italy, followed by a roll out across our other countries. Our ambition is to be the bank for Europe's future, and we can only do this by unlocking the enormous value UniCredit has within it, providing our colleagues with the tools they need to succeed."

The new Unicredit University Italy is divided into four areas of competence: People, Business, Risk and Training by role, selected because of their relevance to each and every function across UniCredit. The programme will be delivered virtually and in person, by experts selected from inside and outside the bank.

This will be delivered  through the creation of seven training centres in each of the regions where the bank operates and around 70 training points and classrooms across Italy.
