MSc in Shipping Management
More than 90% of the World’s trade is transported by ships.
Shipping is one of the most important sectors of the global economy. As a globally competitive industry, it is not influenced by the current situation in the Greek economy.
The MSc in Shipping Management is designed to develop professionals equipped with the skills, knowledge, and expertise required for a successful career in the demanding and highly competitive world of Shipping.
The program provides students with a holistic and in-depth knowledge of the most important issues in modern commercial shipping. Students will gain solid foundations of ship management, maritime economics, ship technology, chartering, maritime law, insurance, risk and strategic management, which are particularly relevant for companies in this sector.
Full Time and Part Time mode: The program commences every September and is offered on a full-time (12 months) and part-time (24 months) basis. All courses -for full-time and part-time participants- are held in the evening.
Highlights of the Program
A generic shipping program: Rather than being a specialized shipping program, the MSc in Shipping Management provides a thorough and deep understanding of all the major theories and practices that can be encountered in a modern shipping company. Holistic knowledge of the operations of a shipping company is of primary importance for those who want to start their careers in shipping.
Academic rigor with practical know-how: The program balances academic rigor with practical experience in order to serve the needs of tomorrow’s ship managers in the most effective ways. Specialized shipping workshops will be delivered by distinguished industry speakers providing in-depth insight into the cutting edge of shipping practice.
Ideal location: The program is offered in Greece, a country with a long-standing tradition in shipping. Greek ship-owners control more than 16% of the world merchant fleet and hold a leading position in the global maritime shipping market. More than seven hundred Greek shipping companies are situated in Piraeus and the surrounding areas.
Links to the industry: the program is strongly supported by the Greek shipping community. Students will benefit from the close links between ALBA and the Greek Shipping community.
