Ocean Network Express (ONE) has entered a partnership with Rutgers Business School (RBS) which will improve its access to academic resources as part of efforts to cut its carbon footprint.
The carrier will present project opportunities to RBS students, and these will allow them to examine trends in maritime decarbonisation and environmental sustainability in the shipping context.
The Green Strategy Department, the newly launched organization dedicated to ONE’s environmental sustainability, will be hosting and mentoring all the projects conducted by Rutgers students.
ONE will also help to educate Rutgers’ students from around the world in vital topics relating to global supply chains.
The RBS International Executive MBA Program meets in Singapore, providing more opportunities to build on the partnership. Additionally, the carrier will contribute financial support and professional expertise to enhance students’ knowledge of the latest business trends.
Doug Miller, director of the Rutgers MBA Program, said the opportunity offered by ONE will enhance both the MBA and undergraduate experiences by allowing students to learn by doing in an area of increasing importance to all businesses.
“We are grateful for their partnership to create learning opportunities for our students that will have significant social impact.”
Yasuki Iwai, Managing Director of ONE’s Product and Network Division, concurred that the ONE/RBS partnership provides uniquely valuable opportunities to its faculty and students, which will help boost the quality of academic teaching and learning, and in turn, yield them a clear competitive edge.
“As ONE, we are a firm believer that broader collaborations make it more effective to achieve a common goal.
“Today we are very pleased to have Rutgers become part of our eco-system and look forward to creating more positive impact to our world and society through our joint efforts.”
