This 10 month program seeks to address the needs of the rapidly evolving, highly competitive and capital-intensive shipping industry by bringing the gap between academic theory and business practice. Those needs have led to increase demand from ship-owning and transportation companies, ship broking firms, shipping divisions of investment funds, among others of personnel with shipping specific, practical financial management skills and knowledge.
The MSc in International Shipping and Finance Program is accredited by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS), the chartered Institute of Securities and Investment (CISI) and the Hellenic Shipbrokers Association (HSA).
Graduates from the Program are eligible for three exam exemptions from the ICS Professional Qualification and one exemption from the CISI Diploma. In addition all the MBA in Shipping graduates can obtain the Gnosis Certificate (S.G.C.) by attending 10 out of 24 S.G.C. seminars.
