Program Description

For centuries, international shipping has been critical to the development of world trade. The inter-relationships between falling transportation costs, economic growth and globalisation are in continual motion as supply chain networks ceaselessly evolve. These elements: shipping, trading patterns and organization are the fundamentals of the programme while the legal, financial, and managerial aspects of trade and transport form the superstructure.

The course delivers a comprehensive integrated overview of the core subjects essential to a thorough understanding of international trade and transport. Specifically, the course aims to develop the generic business skills required by managers working in the area of international trade and maritime business; develop critical analytical skills and apply them to the challenges they continually meet.
