Master in Maritime Law and Business (Private Degree)

General information

Máster en Negocio y Derecho Marítimo (Título Propio)


This 32nd edition of the Master's Degree in Shipping Business and Maritime Law is taught as a joint program between the Spanish Maritime Institute (IME) and the ICADE Business School at Comillas Pontifical University.

The course responds to the growing global need for specialists in the field of marine law and business, and it is aimed at all businesses involved in these activities.

The importance of transport in international trade goes without saying and the second most common way of moving goods, after land transportation, is by sea.

The European Union has recommended that sea transportation be favored through Short Sea Shipping (SSS) over other types of transportation, such as by road, due to the congestion of European highways and the high level of pollution this creates.

Moreover, legal services in the maritime sector are vital from the moment an agreement is made to build a new ship. Detailed knowledge of agreements regarding shipbuilding, financing and vessel use is essential. A firm understanding of the legislation applicable to seizure, collision, maritime salvage, etc. is also very important.

Learning outcome:

Una vez finalizado el curso, los asistentes estarán capacitados para llevar a cabo una óptima gestión en las empresas relacionadas con el transporte marítimo (armadores, agentes, brokers, transitarios, aseguradoras, empresas exportadoras, astilleros, etc).

Objective:

The key aim of this program is to provide students with comprehensive training in the field of sea transportation, equipping them to tackle the problems and challenges that arise in the world of maritime business.
