Taking the Diploma for the Ship Agent was the best choice I made in order to achieve my goals in life. The subjects and material covered are really helping me with the MBA in Shipping and Logistics that I am currently studying.



The course is full of real examples and will enhance one’s practical experience to analyse situations and will help in making strategic decisions. In my opinion it is a ‘must’ course for anyone who is looking for a career in shipping.
