Students on the BA Business course at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) recently enjoyed a trip to LBA2; one of Amazon’s latest Fulfilment Centres at Doncaster.

The core goal of the trip was to see first-hand the magic that happens after customers click ‘buy’ on and how the highly organized logistics allow Amazon to deliver for their customers. Through the behind the scenes tour the students were also able to gain an insight into the operations of this global business and discover how Amazon look after their employees in terms of health, safety, wellbeing and welfare.

Becky Goodman, Module leader on the BA Business Project Based learning module, highlighted the importance of taking learning outside of the classroom:

“Site visits such as this are instrumental in aiding the learning and development of our students; it is key that their learning experiences extend beyond the classroom, and we are thankful to Amazon for providing our learners with such a fantastic opportunity to see how a truly global business operates first hand.”

If you’re interested in a future in international business or in starting your own company, our business courses are the perfect path to take. You can find more information on them on our website or by contacting our Enquiries Team.

Any businesses who would like to work with our learners to share their knowledge and expertise can contact BG Futures, BGU’s Careers, Employability and Enterprise team, by emailing
