B.Sc. in Shipping

Bachelor (ISCED 2011 level 6)


Duration 6 semesters

Course Objectives

The course aims to equip those students wishing to enter the shipping business. To this end, it offers a balanced educational programme in accordance with the general philosophy of the 21st century and the dynamic field of shipping. You will study the various business, legal and financial parameters of shipping as well as gain a practical insight into the local and global shipping industry.

In the first year, we try to give fresh students a general but solid introduction into the exciting world of business management. The idea is that if students do not understand the basic principles of modern management, how can they understand the complicated area of shipping? All subjects taught in the first year aim at aiding the student to shed light on the ‘grey’ areas in the rather demanding and competitive environment of the 21st century.

The second year introduces students to the world of shipping. Quickly, students are faced with the problems of the industry, while, at the same time, the endless opportunities for solutions. World shipping and its developments are tackled and comparative studies of different countries are carried out. Naturally, the course embraces the Cypriot situation and analyses the developments of the last forty years. Simultaneously, the second year presents to the student the other basic functions of shipping and general management in a far greater depth than the first year.
