About this course

This full-time MBA (Maritime) at the University of Southampton will give you the knowledge and confidence to stand out in the fast-moving business world. You'll gain essential management skills and learn how to apply these in the maritime sector.

This Master of Business Administration (MBA) will train you to lead people and organisations to face the challenges of sustainability, innovation and change in today’s volatile business environment.

On this maritime pathway you'll gain specialist knowledge in maritime industries while also learning about business management. This is particularly relevant for:

  • maritime industry consultants
  • sea-based professionals transferring to shore-based roles with management expertise
  • professionals transferring into the maritime sector from other industries

You’ll learn from experts whose research directly informs the course content. Our academics will show you how to apply the latest thinking to real business problems through:

  • business research
  • ‘live’ client consultancy
  • company visits
  • international study trips
  • exposure to senior business leaders

The MBA in maritime management includes 2 international trips: a study trip to Netherlands and Belgium, and a consultancy project in Brazil. These are another chance to apply your learning to practical business situations.

You’ll graduate with a wide range of business skills, the confidence to tackle problems and lead organisational change, and experience of working in an international, cross-cultural team. Our students come from a variety of professional backgrounds and many return to their sector with a view to taking on roles with greater managerial, strategic or leadership responsibilities.
