Izertis opens its university classroom at CEU San Pablo

"Come in and find your place". This is the suggestive invitation that reads in the recently opened Izertis classroom in Madrid. The CEU San Pablo University, on the Montepríncipe campus, has been hosting this Izertis classroom, the L 2.1.5, since yesterday. The inauguration ceremony was led by the Vice-Rector for Students and University Life, Ángel Bartolomé, and the company's Director of Talent and Recruitment, Julia García, in front of a group of fourth-year Computer Engineering students. In their speeches, they both agreed on the importance of the union between business and university, promoting the approach of future graduates to the world of work. 

"This is your home and your classroom," said Bartolomé after thanking Izertis for its initiative , "a company that works at the forefront of technology and innovation". "At the corporate level, each company is a different world, with its tradition, its history, its internal processes... And we can bring all that to the final years of the degree, so that this corporate culture is transferred here, to the university, and we can go hunting for talent and work on the different business dynamics," he added. The vice-chancellor not only called for the development of a "real and practical" space, but also urged Izertis to move forward in collaboration: "University life is much bigger. Let's hope that it starts in the classroom and then reverts to TFG (Final Degree Project), in research, in the hiring of scholarship holders, and in the development of talent with future workers". 

The Director of Talent and Recruitment at Izertis, Julia García, used her speech to present the multinational technology company to the students, a "Spanish company, focused on the most disruptive technology sectors, in full expansion and growth, and with a focus not only in Spain, but also in Europe and North America". He thanked CEU San Pablo for the opportunity to "bring the company closer to the university students, the reality that they are going to find outside the academic world. We feel very privileged. Garcia reminded the students that there is a very high demand for good professionals and urged them to make the most of the initiative in a practical way. "We want you to ask us whatever you need. This is a great initiative to develop you as professionals, to see the future and the technological capabilities of the market, and you will be very welcome to us," he added. 

Also present at the event on behalf of the University were Carmen García de Elías, manager of the CEU San Pablo University, Santiago de Molina and Abraham Otero, director and deputy director of the Higher Polytechnic School, and Maider Uriarte, member of the Careers team. On behalf of Izertis, the director of Corporate Communication, Cristina Tuero, and Diego Gómez, Solution Architect QA, who was in charge of offering the first workshop of the company's classroom, were present.
