Case studies


Every day, life presents new challenges and opportunities. Every day, we have a new story to tell that involves tangible needs and requires clear answers.

The case studies are concrete examples of the UniCredit's commitment, Groupwide and at local level, on the topics of the sustainability.


Unicredit Risk Academy

Our Risk Academy is a Group Risk Management project aimed at building a stronger and more effective risk culture at UniCredit.


Gender Balance Program

An international program to identify tools and initiatives aimed at promoting a gender balanced approach at all levels of the organization.


UniCredit Risk Academy

Launched in 2010, the academy provides education in risk-related issues.

The Risk Diploma learning path, certified by the SDA Bocconi University of Milan, is designed for the professional risk management community and all interested colleagues. Based on an intensive online core curriculum that introduces participants to the fundamentals of risk and risk management, it also includes advanced master classes designed to build upon existing knowledge by exploring concepts in advanced risk management.


The Risk Master Series, specifically intended for senior risk and business executives, offers several days of workshops focused on risk culture and management, leadership and communication skills.

The objective is to create a harmonized risk culture by aligning leadership attitudes, sharpening risk management skills and improving risk efficiency and effectiveness.


The Strategic Risk Management Learning Lab, aimed at non-risk executives and talent program members, comprises two days of training that take a non-technical approach to fostering internal risk sensibilities. By attuning participants to risk and its impacts on the bank, the program adds a vital dimension to the daily decisions and actions of UniCredit managers.


2012 key results

  • 93,800 internal training hours
  • 6,450 colleagues (up 18 percent from 2011) on such risk-related topics as credit, markets, liquidity, operational and reputational risks, and the regulatory framework
  • 10 news pieces via internal communication channels, which garnered 14,164 unique visitors and 24,288 page views

Gender Balance Program

Gender balance is a way to create fair, equitable, respectful workplaces where both male and female have equal opportunities, and are given recognition based on individual merit regardless of their gender or personal features.

Under the "Gender Balance Program" a team of colleagues from different countries, companies and competence lines, have been working since the end of 2011 to identify tools and initiatives  to promote a more gender balanced approach at all levels of the organization.


The Program focuses on the following priorities:

  1. Set the framework through Group common principles
  2. Get clear idea of status/numbers - Monitor trends & improvements
  3. Support career and development plans
  4. Increase awareness on the business case for gender equality
