Course Description

Our MBA Maritime Operations programme is designed to cater to the needs of working professionals seeking to advance their careers in the maritime industry. With a focus on flexibility and accessibility, this 12-month fully distance learning programme begins with ‘taught’ e-learning chapters covering advanced techniques in research methods, project management, leadership, and statistics.

The e-learning course materials for these lectures are delivered through MLA’s Total Learning Package (TLP), which can be downloaded to computers. One of the distinguishing features of this programme is the MBA research project which provides an exciting opportunity for students to undertake a specific 60 credit dissertation module, combining practical and academic research work in which they demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, skills and abilities appropriate to the award of the MBA degree.

Students will benefit from full tutor support throughout their academic journey. The flexible delivery allows students to study at their own pace, meaning that it may be possible to submit within a shorter or longer timeframe.

The programme offers one core MBA award with the option of subject specialism pathways, resulting in the following pathway titles being available:

Graduate testimonials

Having a personal tutor/point of contact with the College was very useful. In the sometimes lonely world of distance learning, it is nice to receive some personal feedback.
