Maritime transport is the backbone of international trade and the global economy. The standards of living in the industrialised and developed countries as well as the livelihoods and employment of billions of people in the developing world, depend on ships and shipping. Globalisation means that sea transport will continue to play a pivotal role in trade movements well beyond the 21st century. Cyprus, as a leading EU maritime nation, is also among the top maritime countries in the world and a well-established commercial and business hub.
International trade is built on the interrelationships of transportation, economic growth and globalisation plus the underlying processes of shipping, trade patterns, finance and regulation. The Frederick University BSc Programme in Maritime Studies aims to develop the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for a successful career in the trade and maritime sectors.
The BSc in Maritime Studies is firmly established and respected in the shipping and trading community, being the first Programme of its kind in the Republic of Cyprus.
The BSc Programme in Maritime Studies aims to equip students with a thorough knowledge of every aspect of the Maritime Business applied on a broad business administration knowledge base.
