The dual Maritime Management degree (called Shipping & Ship Finance until 2011) offers a practice-based business administration degree with a special focus on the maritime industry alongside organised company training. In addition to the fundamentals of business administration, the course teaches selected industry-specific contents and covers specific shipping-related topics such as Maritime Law and Ship Management. The partner companies are generally companies from the maritime industry.

Programme Structure

Students gain practical business administration know-how and acquire fundamental knowledge in maritime and logistics. Special attention is given to method skills. The foundations of business administration knowledge are laid in the first two years of the programme, together with an introduction to (maritime) logistics, plus method modules, languages and law. As the programme progresses, there is increasing emphasis on maritime-specific modules, and the third year concentrates fully on maritime and logistics modules.

Maritime & Logistics

The course teaches certain business administration contents that are adjusted specifically to the maritime industry, such as Strategic Management, Maritime Law and Taxation Issues, IT, Risk Management and Controlling, Insurance Principles, Technical Reliability and Financial Derivatives. The course also specifically covers logistics topics as part of the maritime industry. After an introduction to logistics, transport planning problems are dealt with in the second year of the course. As part of the maritime core modules, Ship Finance provides more in-depth knowledge on risk management, investment and financing as well as maritime law aspects of ship financing. Shipping & Ship Management deals with topics that include Liner Shipping, Maritime Economics & Policy, Environmental Issues and Green Shipping, Newbuilding Contracts, Acquisition of Second Hand Tonnage and Chartering.
