GXO Logistics, Inc., the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics provider, has signed a cooperation agreement making the company a substantive partner with Kozminski University, which has been recognized by the Financial Times as the best business university in Central and Eastern Europe and is a leading business university globally. Together, GXO and Kozminski University will implement an education program called “Career Academy” that will include classes, internships and apprenticeships as well as recruitment for GXO positions.
“We’re delighted to partner with Kozminski University to educate the future leaders of the logistics industry in Poland,” said Jean Luc Bessade, GXO Managing Director for Central and Eastern Europe. “By sharing our deep knowledge and experience in an academic environment and through internships, we will not only increase the number and quality of opportunities available to students, but also identify students who may wish to realize their full potential at GXO.”
The program was designed by GXO’s Operations and Human Resources teams to enhance educational and career opportunities for Kozminski University students.
“GXO will be a valuable partner for us,” said Sebastian Jastrzębowski, Director of the Logistics & SCM Center at Kozminski University and Director of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) in Poland. “Thanks to the cooperation with GXO, we will provide our students with an opportunity to acquire the practical skills necessary to build a professional career in a world where supply chain management is critical and where technology is increasingly applied to respond to this challenge.”
