Maritime Operations and Management (in Greece)

The Maritime Operations and Management course is designed for existing professionals serving in the industry as well as those looking for a career within the maritime, offshore and sea transport industries. For those already within the industry applicants are likely to have a responsible sea-going or middle-management position. Alternatively, new entrants to the industry are likely to have attained a first degree in a related technical or management subject. This modular course is focused towards giving students the necessary knowledge and skills to help them achieve high levels of attainment in their careers in the maritime and offshore industries. Indeed, many former students on this course have now reached board level appointments in their various companies. During the course, in addition to gaining an understanding of the underlying principles upon which the industry is based, students will also gain confidence in the interpersonal and international cultural skills which are essential to senior roles in the maritime industries. The course takes place in Piraeus, Greece, offering the experience of studying at the esteemed Hellenic Lloyd's Register. You will have access to our online resources as well as the prestigious Kaiti Laskaridis Library collection during your study.

Entry requirements

For those already working in the industry, we require a first degree, recognised professional qualification or the equivalent Certificate of Competence as Master or Chief Engineer: Class 1 Master Mariner or Class 1 Engineer and experience in one of these roles.

For those coming straight from an undergraduate course, we require a lower second class honours degree (or higher) in a relevant subject from a recognised institution.
