This practically oriented degree course with an academic base leads to a B.Sc. in Maritime Economics and Logistics. It should appeal to students with an interest in languages, economics, and technology and leads to positions of responsibility in a range of fields at home and abroad.
The normal length of the degree course is seven semesters (210 ECTS), including a practical semester (work placement) and an internship. A semester at one of our partner universities (New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, the Netherlands, South Africa or Hong Kong, for example) can be integrated into the basic studies. The bachelor thesis which completes the course will be written during the second work placement, usually in close co-operation with a company. This is a mutually profitable exchange.
Persons with a Master’s certificate who completed their degree in Nautical Science in Elsfleth or at an equivalent institution can, after having served as officers at sea, continue their studies with Maritime Management in Elsfleth and finish in three to four semesters.
Our aim is to train interdisciplinary specialists for positions of leadership at the interface between business and technology in the complex area that is the shipping business.
