As one of the world’s leading names in financial data, Refinitiv provides global firms with information, insight, and tools to trade faster and smarter. Beyond its bold vision for the future of the financial community, the company is likewise committed to empowering and preparing the next generation of leaders through its university scholarship program.

“The Philippines is teeming with talented students who just need the right opportunity to excel and showcase their skills. Refinitiv is in a position to help them unleash their potential and guide them in their growth as individuals and as leaders,” shares Lei Buendia, Refinitiv’s Director for Contributed Operations and Manila’s co-site lead.

The scholarship is part of the Refinitiv Philippines Academe Linkage Program, which helps graduating students taking up Business, Finance, and IT-related courses to achieve their educational goals through a financial grant.

Under the program, Refinitiv covers the scholars’ school charges during their final year, including tuition fees and a book allowance. They are likewise given a chance to serve their internship at the company and eventually work there. To date, more than 80 students from the De La Salle University-Dasmariñas, Far Eastern University (Manila and Makati campuses), and Lyceum of the Philippines (Laguna and Manila campuses) have been named Refinitiv scholars, 33 of whom completed their internship with Refinitiv. A total of 62 scholars have been on-boarded as full-time employees, with the rest scheduled to join the company by Q4 2019.

“The true value of the scholarship lies beyond the financial support I’ve been given,” says Darcy May Amadeo, a graduate of Business Administration from LPU-Laguna and now a Content Analyst with the Company Financials group. “The training and exposure I will get from Refinitiv will be a good headstart to my career.”

LPU-Manila’s Executive Director for the Department of Linkages and Standards Tina Aquino believes that “Beyond Refinitiv’s goal of bringing people and ideas together to create synergy, the company is creating an environment with its customers and partners, including our university, to confidently manage change and transform it into greater opportunity.”

Through its talent development and employee-led initiatives, agile culture, and collaborative approach to excellence, Refinitiv continues to position itself as an employer of choice. With its university scholarship program, it is effectively working to develop people who will contribute toward driving and sustaining the company’s—and the nation’s—growth.
