Santander Universities Global Division, the backbone of Banco Santander’s social action, is a proud sponsor of the Brazil-MIT Forum. With its series of inter-university cooperation initiatives, it supports the higher education sector in areas such as teaching and research, international cooperation, knowledge and technology transfer, entrepreneurial initiatives, student mobility and innovation. The program currently has agreements with more than 933 top schools across Latin America, Europe and Asia, and was introduced in the United States in 2009 through Sovereign Bank, a subsidiary of Banco Santander.
"I'm thrilled to support this endeavor because it links Brazil, a strategic country for Banco Santander, with MIT, the world’s leading technology university, to foster hot topics such as energy, environment, innovation and emerging markets."
-Jorge Morán, President and CEO, Sovereign Bank; Country Head, Santander U.S.
