Got a passion for shipping? Hoping to advance your career in the maritime industry? Southampton Solent University’s MBA International Maritime Management programme will help you to develop your industry awareness, focusing on management practices, day-to-day operations and the international markets that drive this exciting industry.
This interdisciplinary course combines traditional MBA content with elements that are unique to the world of shipping and maritime business. Students study all aspects of the maritime industry, exploring the global business environment and developing a greater understanding of the complex interactions between shipping companies, port authorities, businesses and governments.
Business modules cover a range of topics including advanced strategic planning, international marketing and scalable project management methodologies. Students will then apply this newly gained knowledge to a group consultancy project, working in teams to solve real workplace issues.
Maritime units look at global supply chain and logistics management, using this as a context from which to explore fundamental principles of international trade; investment risk; finance and maritime law.
Students will also enhance their research and analytical skills on specialist research units. These units prepare students for a major research project, where they will carry out original research into a specific area of the maritime industry. This project is a good opportunity to specialise knowledge, with many graduates using their research as a springboard for future careers.
Suitable roles for graduates include:
Ship and shipping company management
Marine accident investigation
Voyage operations management
Marine client management
