For the last three academic years, a group of company associates collectively took part in the unique experiences that comprise graduate school: writing academic papers; presenting group projects; and studying journals, books and articles.
The best part of it all? These 26 students completed their studies on the Reading, Pennsylvania, corporate headquarters of Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics. Tomorrow they will be the first onsite class (also known as a cohort, because they went through the program on the same track) to earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from nearby Alvernia University.
This summer, Penske is helping 34 college students jump-start their careers through Penske’s Summer Internship Program at its corporate headquarters in Green Hills, Pennsylvania.
Penske is seeking qualified candidates for a variety of positions at college career fairs nationwide throughout March.

When a devastating earthquake hit his nation in 2010, hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives. Bernard knew he needed a new start.
