About Maria Benjumea:
My biggest investment (gamble) is in the development of people. I am my own startup.
Maria Benjumea is one of the most important figures in Spain, the business world, and entrepreneurship. After graduating with a Geography and History degree, she went on to open her first company in 1980: an antiques shop that served as an art gallery that also offered restoration and conservation services to its clientele. Always ready to meet new challenges, at age 40, she decided to take a chance on a new idea: creating Infoempleo, a pioneering service in internet job search.
Infoempleo started in 1994 and was her first major success: it became the first job portal in Spain who opted for the concept of “professional network” as a framework for career management and talent. More than four million people are part of this system of intermediation with companies, serving both unemployed, as well working professionals seeking new opportunities.
María Benjumea remains president and shareholder of Infoempleo, however for the last two years the Vocento group has taken over the management of the company. Giving her the opportunity to invest in her latest project Spain Startup & Investor Summit. Last October they held in Madrid the second edition of Spain Startup & Investor Summit, where highly innovative Spanish companies were present seeking to find investors from different parts of Europe and Silicon Valley.

An innovative new pan-Atlantic academic agreement will mean students registered with Schiller International University in the USA will also study towards a second, separate degree authorized by the University of Roehampton in London.
Schiller International University (SIU) and the University of Roehampton (UoR) in London have signed an agreement where students will study for a degree awarded by Roehampton alongside their Schiller degree and receive two separate qualifications.
A student from anywhere in the world studying at Schiller will earn an accredited US degree and a British degree valid in 45 countries under the Bologna process. This is a truly innovative arrangement, which will benefit Schiller’s student body by providing them with a global profile.
Regardless of the campus of choice: Madrid, Paris, Heidelberg or Florida, Schiller students will also be enrolled in the University of Roehampton. With a heritage which stretches back 170 years, the University of Roehampton, offers degrees in a wide range of disciplines including business and economics. Set in a scenic, traditional campus overlooking the Royal Richmond Park, Roehampton has a reputation for an excellent student experience, high levels of student employability and cutting edge research-led teaching.
The agreement between Schiller International University and Roehampton goes beyond a student receiving credits during an Erasmus exchange or a study abroad at another university. Over a four year period, (one year for postgraduate programs) undergraduate students will achieve two degrees, one from Schiller International University, and one from The University of Roehampton delivered by Schiller.
Students’ courses will include a number of modules / credits which will count towards both degrees, in addition to a number that are specific to either their Schiller, or their Roehampton qualification, including a Dissertation or Thesis. All teaching and the Dissertation or Thesis will be carried out by Schiller’s academics.
Through this collaboration students at Schiller receive an education that crosses borders and increases their opportunities academically and professionally by giving them access to both American and European markets. In the current job market this will enable graduates to meet the demand for a workforce that is capable of adapting and growing
