For Natixis, it is important to build special ties with schools and universities. With the C.A.M.P.U.S. Awards, Natixis shows its capacity to detect the talents of tomorrow. This approach is also in line with the actions carried out for students throughout the year. By attending several forums, Natixis intends to understand and meet the needs of students and to show its array of business lines and assignments.
