Kuehne+Nagel completes second round of mentorship programs

by Madaline Dunn

Logistics company Kuehne+Nagel has shared that it has completed the second round of mentorship programs for year-one Emirati students at Zayed University in Abu Dhabi.

The partnership with Zayed University included a Partner Challenge Program, Spring 2023, a mentorship program for students seeking to gain experience with UAE-based companies.

The program saw 40 students divided into groups and tasked with presenting tangible solutions to different challenges, including reducing landfill waste in a logistics company.

The project groups worked on identifying the source of waste and diversion options, such as recycling or reusing, and proposed several solutions across two months.

Following the students’ presentations and the conclusion of the program, the representatives from Zayed University visited Kuehne+Nagel facilities in Dubai South, where they observed the solutions the company implemented to reduce waste and minimise water and electricity consumption.

“I am very impressed with Zayed University students who participated in the mentorship program. Their readiness to learn outside the classroom and challenge the standards is exemplary. If they show such a commitment to the development and their personal goals during the first year of their studies, we can only imagine what they can achieve once they graduate!” commented André Unland, National Human Resources Manager at Kuehne+Nagel UAE.

Jane Tatterton, Acting Assistant Provost For Student Affairs at Zayed University, added: “Thanks to our partnership with Kuehne+Nagel, our students have the opportunity to work on real-life business scenarios and gain insight into the business operation of a large, international company. Students get a unique opportunity to meet a potential employer, build new employability skills and enhance their career prospects within the logistics and supply chain industry.”
