MBA - Transport Economics and Logistics Management


10 locations available

Program Description

Information Session


Transport and Infrastructure have been identified as important prerequisites to enhancing social and economic development. ESAMI is aware that without a critical mass of trained staff in the transport sector, its operational performance will remain poor, hence the introduction of MBA-TELM.

In addition to classroom sessions, the students will undertake a one to two weeks’ overseas tour as part of the program. They will be able to visit a number of transport and logistics enterprises and have the benefit of exchanging experiences with their counterparts.

The MBA-TELM courses are offered in the evenings from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm. These classes will run for two to three weeks every two to two and a half months.
