The industry -

Shipping is a key link in the global supply chain and accounts for over 95 per cent of all imports and exports. With the growing demand of a global population, levels of international trade have dramatically increased over the last four decades. In the UK alone, this translates to a contribution of around £31 billion for the UK economy and the maritime industry is responsible for one in every 50 jobs. With the world shipping fleet growing at just under 4 per cent per year and anticipated annual growth in seaborne trade demand currently sitting at 3-4 per cent, opportunities in this industry continue to be as diverse and numerous as the cargo it carries.

The programme -

This interdisciplinary course combines traditional MBA content with elements that are unique to the world of shipping and maritime business. Students study all aspects of the maritime industry, exploring the global business environment and developing a greater understanding of the complex interactions between shipping companies, port authorities, businesses and governments.

Business modules cover a range of topics including advanced strategic planning, international marketing and scalable project management methodologies. Students will then apply this newly gained knowledge to a group consultancy project, working in teams to solve real workplace issues.
Maritime units look at global supply chain and logistics management, using this as a context from which to explore fundamental principles of international trade; investment risk; finance and maritime law.

Students will also enhance their research and analytical skills on specialist research units. These units prepare students for a major research project, where they will carry out original research into a specific area of the maritime industry. This project is a good opportunity to specialise knowledge, with many graduates using their research as a springboard for future careers.
