Over 90% of the world’s goods are transported by sea, making shipping the most vital part of world trade. The MSc in International Shipping and Logistics of the Southampton Solent University helps students develop the key skills and knowledge required to tap into this exciting, global industry and have successful careers.

In the current marketplace, shipping executives need to understand all aspects of the international supply chain management.
