The fast-growing Maritime sector is vital to the smooth flow of goods and cargo. Antwerp is the perfect place to study Maritime Management as a vital hub in the Maritime industry with the second largest port in Europe. You will be truly submerged in industry practice and attain the skills to become an expert in maritime transportation management.
Before Ishan Wagaskar decided to study in Flanders, he worked on an oil tanker for over 10 years. For his work he visited the port of Antwerp multiple times.
He was always fascinated by the Port of Antwerp because it is very big and has a large petrochemical cluster. Therefore he was thinking about working there someday.
To be able to fulfill this dream he decided to study Maritime Transport Management, a joint program by AMS and University of Antwerp. He now works as an estimator at EDR Antwerp Shipyard.
“This was a tremendous educational and international experience, buckle your seatbelts if you are ready for the journey!”

"What better place to gain knowledge of the maritime industry than Antwerp! The MMATM course of C-MAT will get you ready to take on a maritime career straight after graduation. You will be lectured by renowned professors who hold close relations with the industry. The course balances theory and practice perfectly by organizing field trips, enjoying guest lectures given by C-level people from maritime multinationals, and solving real-life business cases. To enhance your practical knowledge, you will be taken on field trips to the port of Antwerp-Bruges and the port of Rotterdam, the two biggest ports in Europe. At AMS, you will be part of a multinational team of maritime enthusiasts which makes the experience even more wholesome. If you want to combine maritime management studies in a wonderful and vibrant city, look no further than the MMATM at AMS!"

"I enjoyed all the enlightening discussions with industry leaders on transportation supply chain, strategic management and sustainability. Graduates from this program are equipped with innovative, solution-focused minds as we embark on future endeavors."

“This program has been a great opportunity to bridge the gap between industry and Academia. It offered plenty of avenues to interact with Industry stakeholders and to learn best practices and challenges, in a fast-paced market; whilst also relating to how well they align or deviate from basic economic principles. As a working professional, I found the curriculum to be rapidly evolving with market conditions, while being strongly grounded on theoretical principles and heavily emphasizing on technology and Innovation. Much thought has gone into the design of its modules, leaving students to chose between applying them in their future workplaces or to dive deeper as an academic researcher and contribute to Science, which I personally found to be a nice and unique trait to this program.
Student life is a bit stretched, considering the amount of learning required over such a short duration; however, that is well compensated by the wonderful friendships you make, group activities and helpful staff around you. In a nutshell, a great fun-filled learning experience, especially if one is of the impression, that there is nothing new to learn or that Academic life is short of challenges”.
Lixon Samuel, Alumnus Maritime Transport Management
"The C-MAT programme was a wonderful opportunity to learn from experienced professors as well as interact with the industry. It was a chance to learn more about two exciting industries from a truly global perspective. I’ve even been able to apply my new knowledge at my current job. The city of Antwerp was a great place to study and live, and I am grateful for the experience that I had through the C-MAT programme. I would highly recommend the programme to anyone wanting a challenging but worthwhile endeavour."
