At Shipping, you are provided with an understanding of the context and strategies of the global shipping industry. Ah HA(fil.), you learn about how changes in the global market increase the complexities and challenges within a firm.
At CBS, your teaching is based on the newest research. Research is almost always conducted in English which means, you will be working with journals, books and other teaching material in English, even if your programme is in Danish.
