Middlesex course MBA in Shipping and Logistics has been shortlisted in the annual Times Higher Education (THE) awards in the Outstanding Employer Engagement category.
This innovative course, created by Middlesex University in partnership with Lloyd’s Maritime Academy, is delivered solely by distance learning. It has been designed so students can take this important qualification without having to leave work, even if they are based at sea.
The programme curriculum equips current and future maritime leaders with the skills and knowledge they need to manage their business successfully and progress in their careers.
Programme leader, Dr Kristian Sund from Middlesex, said: “Our shortlisting in this category recognises the success of the course in responding to employers’ needs. A significant number of our MBA participants would not be able to attend regular MBA classes so we devised an online distance-learning programme tailored to their needs.
Times Higher Education said the shortlist for 2011 showcases “the sector’s standouts.”
“The unflagging quality and innovation evident in universities across the UK shows the sector's resolute commitment to excellence in the face of a difficult and unpredictable climate.” it added.
The award ceremony will be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London on Thursday 24 November.
