The shipping industry tends to be different from other industries because of its global nature, capital intensity, high sensitivity to economic upswings and downturns, typical organisation and ownership structures and its sensitivity to geopolitical forces. In this constantly changing and extremely competitive international context, strategic options of maritime operators appear to be even more complex.
The domain Shipping management, part of the MSc Shipping and Transport programme, brings the student a sound introduction to the relevant stakeholders and policies regarding maritime management. After a starting point of corporate strategies, the whole maintenance and technical management process will be handled, including the system support functions, followed by crewing issues.
The domain Shipping management will enable participants to make their choices in a reflected and holistic way and inspire change and innovation in organisations through human resources management.
