Amazon Fulfillment Tour

At Schiller International University we want students to have the opportunity not only to develop their skills but also to take a look at what the corporate world looks like and also, what is waiting for them once they finish their degree. That is why our Professors frequently invest their time in finding opportunities to visit the facilities of some of the leading companies in the world.

 

Last week our students had the opportunity to visit Amazon Fulfillment Center in Madrid. Here, they saw firsthand all the logistics happening inside this leading tech giant. The visit was scheduled by our Professor Edgar Barroso, as part of the activities that our students have throughout the semester. It sure helped enrich the University experience and encouraged our students to further their knowledge in pursuit of their goals.

This tech giant whose slogan is “And you’re done”, has been a global leader for internet sales all over the world and is considered the most valuable retail brand.

Meet our Alumni – Borja Granzow

 

Borja Granzow, a Schiller Madrid Alumni, recently came by the university and we had the opportunity to ask him what was his experience was like here at Schiller International University. Let us read it from his own words:

“Firstly, attending Schiller was a boost, not only on my academic life, but also in my personal life. One of the most distinct ways Schiller has helped me in, would be in the International education that they provided. As it was the first time in my life that I was surrounded by so many nationalities and cultures all over the world. And being able to learn and adapt to each one of them, which has helped me in my job on a daily basis, as I worked with different nationalities and cultures every day.

After finishing at Schiller I was hired by a Spanish company, where I’ve been working for the last two years, in three different cities, Madrid, Lima and Santiago de Chile. The company I work for is a Freight forwarder , in which I have worked as a Logistics Operator. We arrange customs and international transportation of goods for companies imports and exports with a worldwide presence.

Surely, the greatest benefit of an international career is the possibility to learn about different cultures of people that are the same as you no matter your status or race and learning to work and adapt to them. Also , having the possibility to adapt yourself in that country in the future. “

Amazon Internship

One of our recent International Business Students, Christian Corcuera, has just begun his internship at amazon.es . He recently came by the Madrid campus in order to give us the inside scoop of what his experience has been so far. Let’s see what Christian has to say:

“Four years ago I started my very first class at Schiller’s Madrid campus. During the entirety of my Bachelor’s degree I have had the opportunity to be at both Madrid and Heidelberg campuses. During my experience at Schiller I have learned so much more than I ever thought I would. The diverse student body, the helpful professors, that even become your friends, really make a difference. The small class sizes  helped me to  focus and go more in depth with the  course material.

To a great extent, these four years at Schiller have helped me to become a better person. All of the knowledge I have gained, and the ability to study one class per month have helped me to truly understand each class and become a master of each subject. I have always wanted to make a difference and Schiller international University has given me the tools I need to get into a great company where I can apply all of the skills I acquired into my daily tasks with complete confidence.

I am looking forward to all of the practical and hands-on experience I will be able to gain during my time at amazon.es
