Who is it for?
You are a business-focused individual with a high-performing career in global shipping and its associated industries as your ultimate goal. Equally at home with practical subjects and academic theory, you thrive on solving tough challenges under time constraints. You want to acquire or sharpen the skills necessary to operate at an executive level in areas ranging from shipping, supply chain and commodities, to finance, investment, trading, banking and related sectors and industries.
The course is offered through the Costas Grammenos Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance. The Centre is widely recognised and valued by practitioners and academics.
Since its launch in 1983, its three primary aims remain the same:
Offer high quality teaching in its three interlinked disciplines of shipping, trade and finance
Produce high quality research in these areas
Create a forum for international dialogue between academia, industry and government and to link decision makers.
The combination of the three disciplines of shipping, trade and finance was pioneering at the time but also remains current and relevant in today’s economic and financial environment. This multi-disciplinary approach ensures that you are equipped with competitive skills and knowledge not only in the core area of shipping but also in the areas of commodity trade, ship finance, banking and investment.
