BA
Shipping Management
with an optional concentration in Maritime Logistics

(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 globally. In Cyprus in particular, Shipping has been – and continues to be – a thriving sector. Shipping, both as an industry and a service, global trading patterns and Shipping organisation, regulation, and prospects are the fundamentals of CIM’s BA Shipping Management with an optional concentration in Logistics, an area in which CIM has been excelling for years .

Our BA Shipping management with an optional concentration in Logistics course offers a comprehensive and integrated overview of the core subjects essential to a thorough understanding of Shipping Management. More specifically, 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, Logistics and Economics) 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 fields of trade and shipping and map out their significance 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 reflect on integrated situations, with a view to assessing and predicting courses of action that they might take as shipping managers, in order to maximise efficiency and effectiveness. The Graduate Project/Internship course at Year 4 provides an opportunity to apply learning from all courses into a real-work-place environment.

The programme aims to prepare students as critical, independent, thinkers, ethically sensitive and socially responsible, who will excel in their chosen careers in the shipping sector and in other related areas.
