The Master in Maritime and Air Transport Management prepares its graduates for the challenges faced by the transport sector today. In the program, students can choose one of three majors: transport research, air transport or maritime transport. Thus, students can tailor their program to their specific interests and background.
The majors "air transport" and "maritime transport" allow students to upgrade their knowledge and abilities and prepare them for their next career step in the maritime or air transport sector. Moreover, the main objective of these majors is to help executive staff members from transport-related companies and organizations (shipping companies, port authorities, terminal operators, airlines, airports etc.) to become top-notch executives.
The major transport research, on the other hand, offers students a more methodological and quantitative training. In this major, students receive an excellent preparation for a career in for example consulting, policy or research. Moreover, the major transport research can lay the groundwork for further academic pursuits such as a Ph.D.
The Master in Maritime and Air Transport Management is specifically designed with an international audience in mind. It is aimed at individuals with a background in economics or management focusing on transport-related matters and who wish to develop their skills in these areas with a view to career advancement.
Furthermore, students become truly submerged in industry practice during the course of the programs. First, numerous excursions and company visits are organized as part of the various courses. During those visits, students can strengthen the contact with industry and get an insight into state-of-the-art industry practices. Second, courses do not only include well-known academic guest lecturers, but also top managers from the maritime and air transport industry. Last but not least, the master dissertations for the Maritime and Air Transport major are developed in close cooperation with transport companies.
