The Blue MBA appoints Gunnar Georgs as an Ambassador to enhance links with German market
Gunnar Georgs, a maritime industry personality with impressive experience in Europe and Asia, is to be an Ambassador for the Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics (the Blue MBA) with special responsibility for the German market. He will enhance the links of the world-renowned Copenhagen Business School venture with the extensive German maritime sector.
Hamburg-based Gunnar Georgs has since 2008 been a leading executive in the port city with IRI International Registries GmbH, an arm of the maritime and corporate administration of the Marshall Islands. He has been an authorised officer of the company since 2012, and is regional manager covering Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Poland.
Irene Rosberg, programme director for the Blue MBA, said: “Gunnar Georgs has a superb record of serving the shipping industry in many facets, and as one of our Ambassadors will heighten our relationships with businesses controlled from Germany.
“Hamburg has for many years hosted graduate events for us, and we enjoy excellent co-operation with shipowners and other maritime interests in the country.
“Together with our other Ambassadors, Gunnar will lend his valued energies to our ongoing pursuit of taking management education to the highest level,” said Ms Rosberg.
The highly-regarded MBA programme consists of eight modules taken mainly in Copenhagen, with one each in London and Hamburg. Participants, who hold senior rank in their companies or organisations, continue to fulfil their normal duties in addition to the challenging coursework, and graduate after completing the modules and a final master thesis.
The Blue MBA Class of 2019 entered its second year of study as from September 2018.
