Valenciaport is the leading Spanish port in the Mediterranean in terms of commercial traffic, primarily of containerized cargo, in large part thanks to a dynamic sphere of influence and a vast network of regular connections to the main ports worldwide.

Teaching Methods

These courses are taught in conjunction with the Master's Degree in Port Management and Intermodal Transportation in order to achieve greater interaction between the various professionals studying on the programs. The course content follows a practical approach, requiring students to resolve case studies, either individually or in a group, with the aim of demonstrating their executive management skills.

  • In order to keep ahead in a highly competitive market, it is essential to understand how Customs works and the possibilities it offers companies today for managing import and export operations. In modern business management, it is a well-known fact that offering the cheapest services is not enough: you also have to offer the best quality, agility and efficiency, which is what keeps you one step ahead.
  • Through its recently modernized procedures, Customs has begun to offer companies operating at ports substantial benefits in terms of managing and processing goods. This in turn allows companies to offer their customers a genuinely outstanding service.
  • This course presents Customs in its position as a stop-off point for external traffic, exploring the various alternatives for optimizing decision-making processes at company and worker level, regarding goods to import or export.

The program combines theory-based lectures with active student participation, either as individuals or in groups, in case study analysis, exercises or projects in which students can demonstrate what they have learnt from the issues at hand, thus familiarizing future managers with the concepts of debate and group work.

The classroom-based element is complemented by monographic sessions, conferences, talks and visits to port facilities, in order to contribute to the students' professional and personal development.al y personal del alumno.
