The remaining two units can be chosen from the range of degree electives available. In this way you can customise your course to suit your career plans and personal interests.

This course is designed to provide both existing and potential middle and senior managers with management knowledge and expertise, including its application to maritime industry operations. With the focus on an applied approach to this critical industry, centred on strategic and analytical thinking, a unique educational experience is provided.

Career outcomes

The organisations connected with the maritime and logistics industries are very diverse, including for instance large private companies, entrepreneurial start-ups and government entities. The diversity creates many opportunities for your career progression, both globally and domestically. For example, the maritime industry includes ports, shipping companies, stevedores and tourism and the logistics industry encompasses warehousing, road freight, air freight, freight forwarding and distribution. Additionally, many organisations may have a primary focus on manufacturing or international business, which will necessitate that they have internal departments involved in logistics, supply chain management and international trade, creating more opportunities. With logistics the fastest growing industry globally, there are many possibilities for you to choose.

Professional Recognition

Graduates may be eligible for membership of professional industry bodies such as CILTA, SCLAA and ICS.
