Earn a Master’s degree at sea

Navarino and the Business Centre of Athens (BCA) College have introduced what they are calling the world’s first MSc in Shipping designed specifically for e-Learning on board ships.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The online Master’s degree programme, accredited by the University of Plymouth, will be launched this summer at Posidonia, and will be available exclusively via the Navarino Infinity platform.

The programme is designed to be flexible in the choice of option subjects, as it is offered on a distance learning pattern of attendance for those who spend long periods at sea and cannot attend regular taught classes.

The programme of study combines theoretical concepts of shipping with case studies and practical subjects. The modules offered include Maritime Economics, Chartering, Shipping Law, Shipping Finance and Shipping Operations, with a particular focus on decision making.

All course materials will be embedded within the Infinity system, including 15 hours of video material per module, e-books, webinars and research materials, allowing users to complete the modules at their own pace.

Students at sea will also have access to web conferencing and continuous teacher support online, all available over their own personal electronic devices.

“For seafarers looking to further their education, e-learning is by far the most efficient choice in terms of both time and cost,” said Navarino CEO, Dimitris Tsikopoulos.

“The great value of e- learning stems from its flexibility, affordability and portability, three factors which combine to make it ideal for those who spend a lot of time at sea. Furthermore, thanks to the latest advances in satellite communications technology, e-Learning is now more accessible than ever before.”{/mprestriction}
