Over 90 per cent of the worldís goods are transported by sea, making shipping and shipping logistics a vital part of world trade. Southampton Solent Universityís international shipping and logistics masterís degree will help you develop the key skills and knowledge required to tap into this exciting, global industry.
Shipping managers in the current marketplace need to understand all aspects of international supply chain management. As the shipping industry evolves towards an integrated, multimodal, door-to-door logistics approach, such knowledge becomes increasingly important.
Southampton Solent Universityís intellectually challenging International Shipping and Logistics masterís degree is designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge sought after by employers within this dynamic industry. The units studied during the course aim to enable students to develop a detailed understanding of the operations and strategies of shipping as a single transport mode within the context of international multimodal logistics.
Taught by a highly skilled team with wide-ranging experience in the maritime industry, the course has been designed in conjunction with key maritime industry organisations to enable students to graduate with the necessary knowledge and work-based skills that will enhance their career prospects.
To complement their studies, past students have had the opportunity to visit key maritime organisations, such as the ports of Southampton, Antwerp and Rotterdam, the International Maritime Organization and the Baltic Exchange. Some of these visits were funded outside of the course fees.
An important element of the course is the accreditation by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS). Students on this masterís programme may be exempt from some of the Instituteís professional exams. The course is also validated by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).Recently, Southampton Solent University launched the China Centre (Maritime) with the key aim of growing a number of strong links with industry and with maritime universities in China, allowing the University to be at the forefront of international research and global trade developments.
