We believe that education helps those who have big dreams to fulfil their great plans. Since our mission is to provide viable solutions for the future, we focus our attention on young people who will be our audience, colleagues and partners of tomorrow.

In addition to long-established academic partners, “Babeş-Bolyai” University, “Partium” University and “Sapientia” University, 2 more institutions of national prestige, the Bucharest University of Economic Studies and the West University of Timisoara, joined us in 2014.

At the beginning of 2015 we started a new stage of our cooperation with the “Babeş-Bolyai” University of Cluj-Napoca and we granted scholarships to sophomore and senior students based on an essay contest. The topic was the OTP Junior product and it was outlined with the help of the Management Directorate for Retail Products and Investment Products of OTP Bank.

In April 2014 we developed two case studies on the basis of the long-lasting partnership between OTP Bank and “Babes Bolyai” University. Based on the contest organised by the team of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, young people completed a series of case studies on banking and economic topics, tailored to the specific context of the 2008-2013 period. The questions the participants answered referred to the advantages and disadvantages of 2008 and 2013 in relation to the banking sector, the contribution of the banking sector to the economic situation in 2009-2013 period or the strategies and segments at which banks should aim at in the next 5 years.

Also, in May 2014 we organised a contest at “Sapientia” University in Cluj on the agricultural products of OTP Bank.
