Planet Ocean’s Top 30 Shipping, Logistics and Related Industry Educational Programmes of 2022 by

The Copenhagen Business School, Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics (The Blue MBA) building

Following our successful awards challenges, the time has come for Maritime Education to all intents and purposes. Many shipping, logistics and related industry professionals are seeking higher education in response to the increasing demands of the volatile maritime industry.

Recognising that the human factor is critical, we surveyed industry professionals to determine which educational programmes are producing the highest calibre graduates in the field. Shipping, logistics, trading, finance, law, human resources, and all other related industries were included in the survey.

Next year, All About Shipping plans to roll out a vote on the Global Top 100 Shipping, Logistics and Related Industry Educational Programmes of 2023.

The top programme is the Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics at Copenhagen Business School, also known as the Blue MBA.

“We are thrilled to see that our programme has been recognised as the #1 programme. Our ambitious goal is to help the industry actively identify, groom and recruit the next generation of shipping leaders and to build a vibrant and creative business community.” – Irene Rosberg, Programme Director of the Blue MBA at Copenhagen Business School
