Advancing globalisation and the sustainable expansion of seaborne trade constantly create new opportunities and challenges within the sector that require regular corporate strategy adjustments.

The process of ship financing has evolved considerably due to the size of shipping projects and the rapid technical and environmental developments that trigger an ongoing need for investment. In addition, the volatile and cyclical nature of the shipping business has led to significant developments in shipping related risk management strategies and investment activities.

As a result, there is increasing demand from shipping and transportation companies, as well as investment banks, shipping related funds and consulting firms for personnel with shipping specific financial management skills and knowledge.

The degree is delivered at the ICMA Centre in the UK and ALBA Graduate Business School in Athens, Greece and is designed to provide a unique educational experience that combines research-led teaching and technically advanced training by world-renowned academic faculty and selected industry practitioners.
