Mastering our craft… Malta Freeport Terminals and the University of Malta have hosted a series of meetings involving four universities that form part of the SEA-EU Alliance in preparation for the launch of a new two-year, full-time Masters degree in Port Management and Logistics.
Representatives from the University of Cadiz (UCA: Spain), Gdansk (UG: Poland), Malta (UM) and Split (Croatia) discussed the contents, learning outcomes and methods of assessment of the four modules that will comprise this exciting new degree.
Subjects will include Port Services and Operations; Port Management and Governance; Shipping and International Law; and Logistics and Supply-Chain Management. Modules will also be offered on a ‘stand-alone’ basis
as ‘micro-credentials’ or study-units.
The discussions received constructive input from Malta Freeport Terminals and Transport Malta representatives as well as Spanish Ambassador to Malta, Dr Jose’ Muriel, who expressed his Embassy’s support for this initiative.
The SEA-EU Alliance, with the University of Cadiz as the coordinating institution, has now grown to nine partner universities from nine European countries – funded by a €14.4m grant from the European Commission to cover the next four
