Learning environment

The CBS Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics aims at giving you unrivalled insight into shipping economics and modern management theories and their application in the maritime sector.

A unique holistic approach to shipping and logistics

The CBS Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics is a modular programme with eight week-long modules over the course of 22 months, supported by a virtual platform. Individual/group assignments and group discussions enhance the learning process.

Programme content overview

Four governing themes are evident throughout the programme:

  • leadership challenges
  • globalisation of the world economy
  • implications of information and communication technology development
  • changes in logistics requirements.

The programme adopts a holistic view of shipping - integrating commercial, technological and financial aspects as well as maritime law and supply-chain management, and leadership challenges - which is unique. Upon graduation, you will have developed a complete understanding of the challenges in this sector. The programme will take you to the top international level in business administration, reflecting the needs of the industry in a world, where globalisation, enhanced competition, and the speed of technological change place ever-increasing demands on executive management skills. 

As part of the learning process, corporate visits in the past have included visits to: Mærsk, Norden, Torm, Danish Shipping, DFDS, where top management shared their insights with the Blue MBA cohorts.

The final Integrated Strategy Project serves two purposes:

  • for the candidate, the aim is to integrate all topics covered in the programme by using real-world data on a problem related to the candidate’s own company
  • for the candidate’s company, the aim is to have a strategic issue thoroughly analysed, with proposed solutions and implementation plans.

"The Blue MBA has a ‘buzz’ which I really enjoy. It is a great programme for bright young managers who have made shipping their business and want the professional tools to succeed. Teaching mid-career students with the knowledge and experience to participate is an exciting challenge and the one-week module system provides the ideal framework.”
