You'll get the chance to immerse yourself in major topics such as maritime administration, ship finance, risk management, maritime economics and trade, maritime law, formulating business strategy, human resource management, executive leadership, international marketing, brand establishment, logistics and supply chain management, project mastery and innovative practice.
Online delivery means you can study without having to travel to attend lectures or seminars. Our state of the art learning portal provides access to online written materials, complimented by audio/visual content, group interaction and networking opportunities. Each module uses a variety of learning tools, combining throughout into a varied, interactive and educational programme that offers the perfect synergy between theory and applications.
The final Business Transformation Project will allow you to analyse a current issue affecting your company or the industry, using real world data and presenting realistic action points.
