Awards to the best Final Year Projects at Comillas ICAI

The project entitled “Stress tests in financial institutions”, directed by Management Solutions’ R&D area, was awarded the first prize for best final year project 2012-2013 at ICAI (Comillas School of Engineering)

Management Solutions participated for the fourth consecutive year in the awards ceremony to the best Final Year Projects at ICAI (Comillas Pontifical University School of Engineering) as the sponsor of one of the categories (specifically, the best projects relating to “Financial and risk management in the energy industry”).

In the category sponsored by the Firm, Sonsoles Martínez Álvarez obtained the first prize for the project “Stress tests in financial institutions”, directed by Javier Calvo Martín. This project covers an extremely topical issue of utmost importance in the financial and economic field and, therefore, in the social field as well. The project is divided into three main sections: an overview of stress tests, a retrospective analysis and a case study, but it also introduces new elements (such as stress test backtesting) and a global perspective (which covers the European, North American and Latin American markets). The conclusions obtained have proved to be equally useful for energy companies from a risk management standpoint.

Gonzalo Martín Bravo, a Management Solutions professional, was also awarded in his category for the project "Development of a strategic business plan for the creation of an MRO center within the aviation industry".

The event was presided over by the Rector at Universidad Pontificia Comillas, Julio Martínez, SJ, who was accompanied by the School Director, Mariano Ventosa.
