100 Marelli Motori and University: a virtuous circle of innovation
Last Friday Marelli Motori had the pleasure to play host to around 100 Engineering Management students from the University of Padua (Italy) which, established in 1222, is one of the oldest universities in the world. Padua University is still considered the ideal place for young people to develop their skills and a very good source for companies to find talented and promising students.
Marelli Motori has always supported this synergy between University & Industry: “Many of our engineers have a degree from the University of Padua” says Arianna Scattolin, Marelli Motori’s HR Manager, “Fostering the partnership between academic institutions and engineering companies is a strategic choice when investing in new talent”.
Interacting with companies is vital for students eager to know the professional opportunities available to them. “Today we have focused our attention on the Supply Chain process”, explains Nicola Battistin, Marelli Motori’s Chief Operating Officer “It is important Engineering Management students understand how the integration of the company’s processes creates immense value to the market. We feel committed to being sharing our long experience with the new generations as they will be the driving force of tomorrow’s growth and innovation”.
