The importance of transport in international trade is well known. Maritime transport, after the overland one, is the most used modality in freight transport.
The European Union has recommended the enhancement of maritime transport through Short Sea Shipping (SSS) compared to other transport modes such as the road one, due to the congestion of European motorways and the high level of pollution that produces.

Shipping industry increasingly demands highly qualified professionals to face the challenges of maritime companies, with higher levels of exigency. For this reason, we train professionals that adapt to the profiles demanded by companies in the sector.
The course offers students the possibility of internships in companies, throughout the course and at the end, with a duration of 3 to 6 months. The students conduct interviews in the companies where they will develop the practices and thus know if the profile and learning needs of the student are appropriate to the company.
We also offer students our "Job Channel" specific to the shipping business, so that students can integrate into the market and alumni can also improve their professional development.
