Join the online port course by C-MAT, APEC and IAPH
C-MAT (Center for Maritime and Air Transport) of University of Antwerp and Antwerp Management School, together with APEC (Antwerp Port Training Center) and IAPH (International Association of Ports & Harbours), jointly offer this executive course on the international aspects of port strategy and management.
Geographical, ecological and environmental factors as well as technological innovations drive ports to change and evolve. The crucial function of ports for a country’s welfare demands resilience and the need for an international strategy to sustain in times of crisis, trade wars and geopolitical shifts. Identifying the external environment, creating a unique competitive position, specifying an international port strategy, and practical implementation are essential to any port’s global development.
- The course consists of 6 modules
- Global macro-economic and geopolitical shifts
- Reflections on climate change, energy transition & sustainability
- Changes in the global supply chain
- The perspective of the various actors in the supply chain
- Regional evolutions in port development
- Port management & strategies
The course will fully take place online, starting 31 January until 11 March. The total effort per week is approximately 8 hours. The content is presented in live online sessions, as well as recorded content, all facilitated and guided by the experts from international organizations such as IAPH, UNCTAD and World Bank, from port authorities and private sectors in the port, from academic experts.
