UPS has chosen Ashcroft International Business School at Anglia Ruskin University to launch an undergraduate and postgraduate work-based leadership degree programme for approximately 150 of its UK employees.
UPS managers and supervisors will be offered the opportunity to enrol on a BA (Hons) Management and Leadership degree or an MA Leadership degree.
The programmes have been tailored to allow UPS’s executive students to marry their studies with their daily work, through blended learning approaches that combine face-to-face tutorage and online learning.
Human resources manager Roger Mays said: “Providing people with the opportunity to expand their own skillset through external qualifications is a core element of UPS’s global philosophy.
“This programme will help our management staff fulfil their personal and professional ambitions while equipping them with real-world leadership skills that will benefit our business.”
