Maritime Management (M.Sc.)

This is a three-semester course, two of which are theoretical and one practical. It is a full-time, non consecutive course. In the first semester the basics of economics, law, and methodology will be covered. In the second semester studies take on an individual profile as the students become part of a current research project. The Master thesis which completes the course is normally written in cooperation with a company, a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Studierende des Master-Studiengangs Maritime Management können ihr internationales Profil weiter schärfen. Im Rahmen einer Kooperation mit dem Australian Maritime College ist es sogar möglich, in einer verkürzten Zeit gleich zwei international anerkannte Abschlüsse zu erwerben: den 'Master of Science' (M.Sc.) und den 'Master of Business Administration' (M.BA.)!

Getting Started

A seven-semester bachelor degree (or equivalent) with 210 ECTS in relevant subjects is required. Relevance depends on whether the previous studies constitute an adequate basis for our Master’s programme. Among these are bachelor or diploma qualifications in Maritime Economics and Port Management, International Logistics Management, Nautical Science, Shipping Company Logistics, Economics and Industrial Engineering. Degrees awarded by universities of applied sciences and universities will be equally recognised.

If applicants have completed a bachelor degree with less than 210 ECTS, or a six-semester course of studies in economics at a university, they can be admitted on condition that they can make up the shortfall in exam credits or in work experience phases in a company within the shipping or logistics industry. New entry in both summer and winter semesters.
