UPS is the world's largest package delivery company and a leading global provider of specialized transportation and logistics services. Its key services are; logistics and distribution, transportation and freight (air, sea ground and rail), freight forwarding, international trade management and customs brokerage. UPS employs 408,000 people in more than 200 countries and serves almost 8 million customers every day.
UPS wanted a programme which would help their management staff to fulfil their personal and professional ambitions and equip them with real-world leadership skills, which would benefit their business.
Anglia Ruskin University partnered with UPS to launch an undergraduate and postgraduate work-based leadership programme for approximately 150 of UPS's employees in the UK. The programmes have been specifically designed to allow UPS's executive students to apply their studies to their daily work, through blended learning approaches, which combine face-to-face tutorage with online learning.
"Providing people with the opportunity to expand their own skillset through external qualifications is a core element of UPS's global philosophy. The launch of this programme is further testament to our commitment to this philosophy, and we are proud of our track record of supporting training and skills development at every level of the organisation.'
