Ocean Network Express has entered into a partnership with Rutgers Business School (RBS) that enables ONE to gain direct outreach to RBS’ academic resources while working to reduce its carbon footprint.

ONE will present business project opportunities to RBS students. These projects will allow Rutgers students to examine trends in maritime decarbonisation and environmental sustainability in the shipping context. ONE’s green strategy department will host and mentor 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. ONE is pleased to contribute financial support and professional expertise to enhance students’ knowledge of the latest business trends.

Rutgers MBA Program director Doug Miller said the opportunity 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,” Mr Miller said.

ONE product and network division managing director Yasuki Iwai said 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.” Iwai said.
