  • This new campus, together with those of Madrid and Mexico and supplemented by an eCampus that has now been implemented worldwide, will help the group to continue sharing knowledge among its employees.
  • Last year saw more than 50,000 enrollments at the Madrid and Mexico campuses.

MAPFRE has opened a new campus of its Corporate University, this time in São Paulo, Brazil. The objective: to create better professionals by strengthening their skills and contributing to their professional development, and to maximize the company’s ability to compete on the global stage.

The new campus in Brazil will provide a channel for training employees and collaborators from Brazil and other countries, and will help to meet the challenge of sharing knowledge among the group’s professionals, who are now located on five continents and do business in more than one hundred countries.

“What sets a company apart is the talent of the people who work there,” stressed the Chairman and CEO of MAPFRE, Antonio Huertas, in his inaugural speech. “We know that the company’s global transformation will require people with global skills and abilities. The crucial importance of training and developing talent is imprinted in our DNA,” said Huertas.

MAPFRE’s Corporate University now has three campuses, following the 2012 opening of the Monte del Pilar Campus in Madrid and the opening, two years later, of a campus in Mexico, another of the group’s strategic markets.

In 2015 the Spain campus received 20,000 enrollments for programs and strategic meetings, nearly a quarter of which were residential in nature. The Mexico campus enrolled 5,500 students on training courses.

The Corporate University offers face-to-face and online collaborative training, delivered by MAPFRE’s own professional experts and external providers. In São Paulo, as in the rest of the world, the educational offering is organized around distinct Schools of Knowledge: Insurance, Actuarial Science, Technology and Processes, Culture and Global Policies, Operations, Clients and Commercial Development, Strategy, Reinsurance, Auditing, Languages, Skills, Leadership and Professional Development, and Innolab, which serves as a channel for training in innovation.

The Corporate University also has an eCampus for virtual training, which has been implemented worldwide as a tool to contribute flexibility, promote collaborative learning, and save costs while gaining efficiency. This  online campus hosts more than 550 courses in several languages, available to more than 50,000 users, including employees and brokers.
