On Wednesday, Amazon announced a $5 million deal to ship degree-granting degrees and other training to students at its Seattle campus.
The new partnership will allow Amazon to “offer students a more rewarding education in shipping, logistics and logistics management.”
Amazon will provide students with training to “better navigate the complex challenges of shipping freight across the globe,” including tracking and securing packages, ensuring shipment to and from destinations, and maintaining safe transportation.
