SHIPPING LEADERS event engThe School of Shipping of Metropolitan College launches the annual event "SHIPPING LEADERS IN RESIDENCE" in the context of providing integrated maritime and shipping training to young people who choose the specific industry for their studies, as well as an important opportunity for networking with larger companies and their representatives.

Within this framework, Metropolitan College hosts throughout the academic year leading figures and prominent personalities of the shipping industry, who share their many years of experience with both the student and the general public. Hosted lectures focus each time on a different subject, which is directly related to the shipping industry and nautical reality, but also on the latest developments, trends and challenges in the industry worldwide.
