Have always had a weird fascination towards ships? How they somehow float despite being so monstrously big. Were one of your favourite movies the Titanic, and not because of Leonardo DiCaprio? Are you someone who wants an adventurous career? If so, then you may want to consider taking up Shipping Management.

The course on shipping management will guide students to better understand the shipping industry and its various segments. Analysing and evaluating various shipping investments proposals, financial statements from large shipping groups, smaller shipping firms and private single purpose enterprises are some of the tasks to be done. Preparing for a career in the shipping industry can mean a wide variety of things. Naturally an interest in sea travel is beneficial if you choose a degree in shipping.

Degrees related to the nautical industry include nautical science, naval architecture, and marine management to name a few.
