This business-oriented program equips students with a high level of understanding of the logistics and maritime industries. It provides the foundation for graduates to undertake senior management positions in these industries. Providing a two year study option will enable students to study and develop a wider range of specialist knowledge in these industries.
The maritime and logistics industries are at the forefront of international trade and are exciting, dynamic and challenging industries in which to work. Our course equips managers to develop solutions for complex issues faced by both domestic and international business activities. It provides practical and applied knowledge suitable for both higher level professional and managerial roles. Units studied include both specialised units, such as port management and business logistics in addition to more traditional MBA units such as strategic management and finance. The course provides an opportunity to enhance your managerial knowledge, skills and analytical abilities to assist your career progression to more senior roles.
Other specialised MBA's are also available that focus on Marine Environment and Management, Maritime Technology and Management and Shipping and Maritime Management. All these courses are fully available by distance and on-campus modes of study, except for the Maritime Technology course, which requires attendance on-campus for some of the engineering units.
NOTE: An applicant lacking the requirement of at least two year’s work experience will normally need to complete J5N before being admitted to 27C. In some instances, however, students may be admitted directly to 27C but will still need to successfully complete all four units in their first semester of enrolment (i.e. the equivalent of J5N) in order to be allowed to continue in the course.
International students with English as a second language will need to have a minimum IELTS score of 6.0, with no band less than 6.0.
