The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the shipping industry have identified that the shipping practice and business in Singapore should be elevated in order to enter into the regional and global arenas.
This is a strategic development that would uplift the local business practice and knowledge to a higher echelon in the international shipping scene, associated with business management, international shipping finance, chartering, and other related issues.
This MSc programme is developed to fill the gap and provide post-graduate level and high-value education for professionals in maritime and related business; elevating them from local business management to one of the international and global business settings.
The foremost intention is to provide young graduates and middle-management executives working in maritime related areas an avenue for higher education. The programme will also be suitable for graduates who wish to be involved in the maritime profession. The education would provide them with necessary knowledge and tools to form the next generation of shipping executives.
This programme has been presented the Excellence in Training Development award at the Singapore International Maritime Awards (IMA) 2009. NTU is honoured in recognition for its outstanding contribution to Singapore’s maritime education landscape.
