Anatomy of Shipping

Since this course was introduced in 1978, over 2000 participants have found the programme to be a convenient and effective way of learning about the business of shipping. With an international flavour and structured approach, there are many benefits to be gained from participation, including: sharing specialised experience of lecturers and participants, gaining knowledge of impending problems, developing leadership potential and analysing problems at an international level. In additional participants will receive a comprehensive set of lecture notes that will serve as a useful reference source long after leaving Cambridge.

The programme is offered twice annually, in the Spring and Autumn and is based around a series of lectures, group discussions and workshops.
