COLLEGE AT THE HUB
Although all of the Technology & Logistics courses are online, we have taken a personal, strategic, and hybrid approach to deliver college courses to UPSers at the Main Street Hub. We call it “College at the Hub.” The objective of this program is to enhance the business skills of the workforce that can immediately impact their existing work environment. This program is also for the aspiring professional on a path towards career advancement. All logistics courses are designed to complete certificates and/or an Associate in Science Degree, as well as provide a seamless transfer to a local Cal State or to National University.
East Los Angeles College’s Technology & Logistics Program has achieved much of its academic strength by cultivating an industry partnership with UPS – Southern California District since 2009. UPS has significantly influenced the curriculum and provides guest speakers and student tours to local UPS facilities as well as career opportunities for many of our students.
In return, we consider ourselves a contributor to UPS’s 100 year legacy by providing UPSers with customized college‐credit courses in the field of logistics. Close to 100 UPSers have earned our Skills Certificates and have transferred to four-year universities. This mutual commitment has enabled the Technology & Logistics Program to positively impact and strengthen UPS’s greatest asset—its people.
