Programme participants have the opportunity to specialise in the field of maritime logistics. Those who select this direction will receive education on shipping lines and all types of maritime transport, such as containers, tankers, dry bulk cargoes, liquefied gas etc. They will also learn about the operating status of ports and the industry related to shipping (shipbuilding, repairs, logistics). The programme offers a broad knowledge of Logistics and the supply chain, while it also educates students regarding the use of qualitative and quantitative research and analysis methods. Theoretical training and professional practice are combined, complementing each other, so that our postgraduate students will be able to listen to the pulse of the shipping industry, evaluate it and utilise it correctly.
The relevant degrees are awarded by the University of West London, our award-winning partner, and are exactly the same as those awarded to postgraduate students in the UK.
