Welcome to the School of Shipping
Shipping is a rapidly developing industry and one of the main pillars of our country, contributing almost 10% of the Greek GDP. The Greek-owned maritime business is the first amongst the European Union with almost 50% share, making our country a world leader in maritime transport and creating the corresponding need for trained executives, who can succeed in the modern business environment.
The School of Shipping has been established to provide the industry with professionals that are offered excellent theoretical, as well as practical training in shipping, in conjunction with the contribution of University of Derby, which is leveraging the experience of the British teaching system in shipping, stemming from the naval tradition of the country.
Our programs, along with the series of events, seminars and other educational activities, provide students with an enriched learning experience and offers the opportunity of taking advantage of all the benefits stemming from the British Education system in shipping. By following the best practices of maritime business management training, we are continuously close to the needs and student potential of each student, by building personal relationships, as well as creating a dynamic community of graduates with links to the Greek and international shipping market.
