Course summary

Examine the maritime industry through multiple disciplines on this practically oriented programme.

Rapid growth and competition in the global shipping industry has left a shortfall of professionals with the tools and techniques to manage ports and shipping operations, in accordance with maritime law and safety regulations.

Coupled with complex systems of ocean governance, ranging from codes of conduct to legally binding regional and international policies, maritime professionals who can chart the course ahead are in high demand.

The business of changing the world is ours.

Our MSc in Maritime Policy and Shipping Management addresses these grand challenges from a range of perspectives. We’ll help you become a management or policy-making professional capable of making decisions that consider the full range of economic, social, environmental and legal impacts of maritime business.

Our experts will draw on academic and consultancy expertise to enhance your international career prospects, introducing you to shipping within wider logistics systems. They’ll use world leading research to give you a critical understanding of the maritime industry, the policy environment within which it operates, and the management of shipping operations.
