In a unique cooperation between a BIMCO and the CBS Blue MBA Alumni Association, we present a new and unique learning experience. The Ship Management Academy is a comprehensive and intensive course designed to equip participants with the essential knowledge and skills required in the dynamic world of ship management. This program covers various topics, ranging from the commercial context of ship management to the intricacies of operational excellence and the latest advancements in the maritime industry. From the outset, participants will explore the fundamentals of ship management, exploring its history, core stakeholders, and the role of a ship manager as both an asset and risk manager. They will examine the competitive landscape and crucial aspects like reputation, performance, and relations management. The programme concludes with insights into the global maritime industry, geopolitical trends, and the expectations of shipowners, cargo owners, and operators. Next, participants will explore principles in ship management, legal aspects, and vessel operations, emphasising the importance of customer-centric approaches, organisational structures, and the need for scale and efficiency. Practical sessions, including case studies, provide participants with hands-on experiences, such as analysing the business case for outsourcing ship management services. The program also covers regulatory frameworks, energy efficiency measures, and alternative fuels, reflecting the industry's commitment to environmental sustainability. It explores performance management, key performance indicators (KPIs), and the role of digitalisation in enhancing service delivery excellence in depth. A significant part of the program is dedicated to exploring emerging industry trends, such as environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations, insurance, financial management, and controlling. Participants engage in case studies that are directly related to these trends, including PNI, salvage management, and various aspects of financial management and procurement. Throughout the program, participants benefit from practical sessions, case studies, and diverse topics, ensuring a well-rounded understanding of ship management's complexities and the tools necessary for success in this multifaceted industry.
