Are you an experienced shipping manager looking for a mid-career change? Are you looking to plant your feet more firmly onshore and use your experience at sea for the next step in your career?  

A good MBA programme can not only help you gain valuable commercial and technological understanding of various aspects of maritime industry,  bring you up-to-date on maritime law and help you face future leadership challenges but perhaps most valuable of all, it can put you in touch with a great network of other professionals across the shipping industry.

Copenhagen Business School, a triple accredited school, recognized as a leading provider of higher education for maritime industry in Europe, is now enrolling for the start of its Executive MBA Shipping and Logistics (Blue MBA) this September.

The programme aims at giving participants up-to-date insights into shipping economics and modern management theories and their application in the maritime sector.

It adopts a holistic view of shipping, integrating commercial, technological and financial aspects as well as maritime law, supply-chain management and leadership demands. In this way, graduates of the programme develop a complete understanding of the challenges in this sector.  

The Blue MBA takes students to a top internationally-recognised level in business administration, reflecting the needs of the shipping industry in a world where globalization, enhanced competition, market understanding, strategic planning, and the speed of technological change place ever-increasing demands on executive management skills.

The programme consists of eight one-week modules plus a final integrating strategy project (thesis).  The eight modules are delivered on a regular basis, spread over the duration of the programme, supported by a virtual platform, where individual/group assignments and group discussions enhance the learning process.  All modules will deal with leadership issues and personal development. 

For the final integrating strategy project, topics should be chosen for their strategic purpose and integrating function, giving participating companies a valuable and practical analysis.  The project serves two purposes: for the candidate, the aim is to integrate topics covered in the programme by using real world data on a problem related to the candidate’s own company. For the candidate’s company, the aim is to have a strategic issue thoroughly analysed, with proposed solutions and implementation plans.

Start of the next class: 18 September 2017
