The privately-owned foundation CBS Executive has launched a new series of ‘short development courses’ – intensive courses ideal for time-pressed managers in the maritime, logistics and associated industries.
Following the opening course in the latest series in January, for the remainder of 2016, CBS Executive (a non-degree arm of Copenhagen Business School) is offering four more each of which will span two days. The goal is to address the need to develop intelligent shipping strategy in the fast-moving markets, and provide expert insight into such essential matters as financing and law.
The courses have been designed by Irene Rosberg, programme director for the Executive MBA in Shipping & Logistics (the Blue MBA) at Copenhagen Business School. Ms Rosberg, who is also responsible for delivery of the schedule, said that the initiative sprang from research carried out which established that industry leaders whose time is at a premium had a clear need for short and effective courses.
The new courses – all taking place at the CBS Executive premises at Porcelaenshaven 22, Copenhagen – are:
March 17 and 18, 2016. The Law of Chartering and Bills of Lading: a Practical Insight. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the key aspects of maritime commercial law and the way it affects the everyday life of the shipping industry.
