MBA in Shipping & Logistics

The Masters of Business Administration in Shipping and Logistics is offered by Middlesex University Business School in conjunction with Lloyd’s Maritime Academy. The programme curriculum has been designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to further your maritime leadership and management career.

The programme consists of six intensive modules delivered online over two years. You’ll get the chance to immerse yourself in major topics such as maritime administration, ship finance, risk management, maritime economics and trade, maritime law, formulating business strategy, human resource management, executive leadership, international marketing, brand establishment, logistics and supply chain management, project mastery and innovative practice.

Online delivery means you can study without having to travel to attend lectures or seminars. Our state of the art learning portal provides access to online written materials, complimented by audio/visual content, group interaction and networking opportunities. Each module uses a variety of learning tools, combining throughout into a varied, interactive and educational programme that offers the perfect synergy between theory and applications.

The final Business Transformation Project will allow you to analyse a current issue affecting your company or the industry, using real world data and presenting realistic action points. This project is not only integral to the achievement of programme outcomes but will prove invaluable to your company or industry sector.

To successfully complete the programme you must pass each module and the final Business Transformation Project. Module assessments will incorporate course work, online discussion participation, examinations and individual and group projects.

Learning support

The tutor for each module will answer your queries about course content and provide assessment guidance as well as facilitating online discussions. In addition to being able to contact your tutor online, they will also be available for real-time phone and email discussion at specific times. A member of the university’s e-learning team will always be available to help you with any technical difficulties should they arise.

Entry Requirements

In order to qualify for eligibility onto the MBA in Shipping & Logistics, preferably, you should have a second class honours degree or above, or an overseas equivalent qualification. You must have a minimum of two years’ managerial or professional experience in a full time position.

If you do not hold an honours degree you will be required to demonstrate significantly successful managerial experience* and may be required to complete a GMAT test. Where English is a second language you may be required to demonstrate a minimum IELTS or TOEFL score.

Undertaking an MBA requires considerable commitment, not just from a financial perspective but also the time allocation required to complete it.

The nature of a distance learning course requires you to adopt a disciplined and independent approach to your studies, so you will need good time management skills and self-motivation. As part of your assessment you will be expected to interact regularly with your tutors and fellow students.
