The project is one of the activities of the Business Social Consulting Service at Comillas ICADE
Ana Bilbao, Beatriz Jiménez-Laiglesia and Carmen Martínez gave a workshop on financial and management tools to more than forty managers of placement companies, special employment centers and social institutions. The three students, who study in the Undergraduate Degree in Business Administration and Management (E-2), participated in the activities organized by the Business Social Consulting Service at Comillas ICADE, in which the project is included.
The workshop is based on a need identified by the General Sub - Directorate for Work Placement of the Autonomous Region of Madrid, which realized that, at times, these entities dive into participation in public contracts without being very aware of their financial and organizational capacities. "The legislation on public procurement is now very favorable to social entities, but it is feared that they will “die of success” because they do not know how to value their financial might properly. Therefore, this workshop has been offered from the area of Consulting, as a service learning activity, which has had very high success in enrollment and which is a challenge for Consulting itself and for the three students ", confirmed Carlos Ballesteros, Director of the Program.
