Under the title “MoneyMatters,” Bank Austria offers a combination of workshops and an online platform enabling students to build up their financial knowledge.
Just under 23% of the clients of debt advisory services and Austria are 30 years old at most.
Financial education is an effective means of avoiding debts. With “MoneyMatters”, a project in the context of our Social Impact Banking initiative, we bring this financial education together with our well-known partner the Austrian Social and Economic Museum into schools.
The program relies on the program “Start-up Your Life,” which was developed by UniCredit, but adapted for Austrian schools. “Start-up Your Life” soon received from Brandon Hall Group the distinction of being the “Best Unique or Innovative Learning and Development Program.”
