A much needed MBA for the maritime industry


Eight Scandinavian universities are in the process of launching an international MBA in Shipping Management. This unique Scandinavian co-operation will ensure that the best academic resources are available for an executive educational programme commencing in Copenhagen in January 2001. The programme, which will be taught in English at centres throughout Scandinavia as well as in Rotterdam and London, aims to attract participants from all facets of the maritime industry right across Europe.

Four governing themes will be evident throughout the programme and across all twelve modules: globalisation of the world economy, consequences of the development of information technology, changes in logistical requirements and new leadership challenges.

But will the industry respond positively in today’s market situation in Europe?

Globalisation and the advanced use of information technology pose new challenges for us all - the traditional ‘on the job training’ approach may prove to be less than adequate in the future. Similarly, the generation change in the maritime industry is not only happening at sea but also in land-based jobs and companies. Middle management from the entire maritime sector will need continuing “life-long education”.

The new two year executive part-time programme will include all the tools and cutting-edge content of an international MBA curriculum - but with a maritime angle and case study focus. All the themes influencing the industry will be addressed, including environmental aspects.
