Shipping Management

(4 Years)

Course Objectives

Shipping has been critical to the development of world trade for centuries. In the late twentieth century, falling transportation costs, worldwide economic growth, new economies and globalisation rendered Shipping a huge industry both at home and abroad. In Cyprus in particular, Shipping has been – and continues to be – a thriving sector. Shipping as an industry and a service, global trading patterns and Shipping organisation, regulation, and prospects are the fundamentals of CIM’s BA Shipping Management, an area in which CIM has been excelling for years (we also run a postgraduate programme in Shipping: MBA with Shipping).

Our BA Shipping management course offers a comprehensive and integrated overview of the core subjects essential to a thorough understanding of Shipping Management. More specifi cally, it aims to develop the business skills required by professionals working in the area of maritime business; to foster critical analytical skills, and to show students how to apply the skills they gain to the challenges that modern maritime professionals will meet. The interdisciplinary nature of the programme (cutting across Shipping, Management, Law, and Marketing) prepares students to be future professionals who can function effectively in the complex business environment of the global marketplace.

The structure of the curriculum progressively introduces students to various aspects of shipping management and the shipping industry. Year 1 courses provide foundations in various disciplines in the fi elds of trade and shipping and map out their signifi cance in operations and decision-making. Year 2 courses pay added emphasis to the use of trade and shipping parameters in decision-making and in evaluating the effectiveness of policies and procedures. Year 3 and 4 courses urge students to refl ect on integrated situations, with a view to assessing and predicting courses of action that they might take as shipping managers, in order to maximise effi ciency and effectiveness.
