The MBA prepares aspiring managers for senior responsibility in today’s business organisations. It combines current theory with the practical skills and techniques required for managing all aspects of an organisation, from functional specialisms, such as marketing, operations and finance, through to whole-organisation strategic analysis and planning.
It explores the international aspects of business, the use of technology to break down barriers and construct solutions, and the enlargement and creation of stakeholder value. It develops managerial skills in the evaluation and analysis of opportunity, leadership and consultation, and organisational effectiveness and change.
The MBA is offered in conjunction with the Business School. While retaining the themes and all-inclusiveness of a classic MBA, this programme, which has been developed in consultation with leading figures from the maritime industry, pursues and applies theory and practice with special reference to the maritime sector.
There are three parts to the programme.
The first provides a solid foundation in various functional areas of maritime business, the systems and skills which link them, and the environment in which organisations compete.
The second integrates these themes through courses dealing with the elements of organisational strategy and the dynamics of organisational change.
The third enables students to meet their individual interests. Of particular relevance to maritime management are the economics of international shipping, public shipping law and maritime policy. Others relate to specialisms in knowledge management, marketing management and finance.
