Fundación CIFF was set up in 2001 as the product of a joint initiative of two important institutions with strong connections with this region: The University of Alcalá and the Santander Group.
We believe that academic knowledge and professional experience form the best combination for enriching our cultural and professional make-up which is why they form two interlinked elements of this Foundation.
The primary objective of Fundación CIFF is to promote a closer relationship between Europe and Latin America, through the exchange of knowledge between corporate professionals and university students who have interests on both sides of the Atlantic with respect to economic and financial activity.
With an end to remaining open and plural at all times, we wish to emphasise the diffusion of the Foundation’s activities in order to reach as many people as possible. Importance is given to distance learning based on the employment of new information and communication technology through our “e-Learning” platform.
