MBA in Shipping and Logistics

The leading online Master of Business Administration for the maritime industry from Middlesex University and Lloyd's Maritime Academy

Starts: 18th September 2017 | Application deadline: 18th August 2017

How do you study the MBA in Shipping & Logistics?

When you study the MBA by distance learning, you will work in the same way as a senior manager - at times working individually whilst at others collaborating with a team of your fellow Middlesex MBA participants from a broad range of industries and locations around the world. Each learning group is monitored by a member of the course faculty to ensure syndicates perform at a high level whilst focused on typical realistic issues facing today's global organisations. Participation in group activities is compulsory and a valuable element of the learning process.

Programme delivery

The programme is delivered using the Middlesex University learning management system, myUniHub. This is a sophisticated 24-hour online portal which gives you the flexibility to work on a high quality MBA while still meeting your work and other commitments. Blending a variety of resources and interaction methods, the programme can be successfully completed from home, work or even whilst travelling.

A Middlesex distance learning MBA does not require you to leave work for a week, a month, or every second Friday - it allows you to study from any time zone, in any part of the world and at any time of day or night. You control your study hours, working at the time and place that's right for you as you participate in asynchronous discussions, work on group projects, and complete individual assignments. You should expect to be challenged, and to spend up to 18–20 hours per week on reading, discussions and assessments.
