Society requires individuals to develop an ever-increasing ability to be able to adapt to new, more complex and shifting economic contexts. The most effective tool used by companies to enhance these abilities is human resource development achieved through solid training plans.

Comillas Pontifical University, through ICADE Business School, which is part of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration, in conjunction with the Valenciaport Foundation, through its IPEC-Training department, promotes, leads and develops this Specialist Course.

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.

The Course, in its 23th year running through 2016-17, will be taught in the Foundation's installations in Valencia.
