Most consumer goods have spent part of their journey from factory to shop on board a ship. The business of shipping is therefore pivotal to the world economy and spans a number of disciplines including commerce, economics, law, logistics and management. What’s more, job opportunities are numerous, whether you aspire to work in a business environment or closer to the world of ships and ports and - because this is an international job market - it could potentially take you all over the world.
