Since 2017 Bank Millennium has been a member of the SGH Partner Club and works closely with the university, taking active part in its life not only as its sponsor but also in terms of educational substance and developing its brand as an employer. Bank representatives take an active part in meetings with the Council of the Warsaw School of Economics’ Partners Club during which elements of the university’s strategy and the possibilities of educating students on key competences are discussed. As part of a cooperation agreement between the institution, the first coworking center at SGH was created. It is a place for meetings, networking, consultations with business theorists and practitioners from SGH and the bank. The coworking center allows students and graduates who have established or plan to establish a start-up business to work freely and marry their concepts with business practice.
The Bank also continues its collaboration with the SGH Student Scholars Club of Statistics, with which it implements projects such as the BIG DATA Conference or substantive workshops for Club members. In 2019, the Bank extended its substantive support for the research project entitled “Study of the savings market among students” executed by the Student Scholars Club of Statistics and the Student Scholars Club of Marketing at SGH. The goal of the study was to learn about the students’ attitudes towards different forms of savings and their experience with savings products available on the market.
Collaboration was also launched with the Student Scholars Club of Finance at the Management Faculty of the University of Warsaw; the Bank’s representatives presented the different facets of working in the banking sector and professional development opportunities offered by Bank Millennium.
In 2019, Bank Millennium, the University of Warsaw and the Camões Institute extended their existing cooperation for three more years. Under this project, Bank Millennium will fund scholarships for the best bachelor degree students of Portuguese studies at the University of Warsaw. The purpose of the signed memorandum is to support the development and extend intercultural experience of Polish students, popularize the teaching of Portuguese language and culture in Poland. Bank Millennium has funded scholarships for the best students since 2013.
