Why this master's program?

Within the supply chain, transportation is an often underestimated but very valuable and vulnerable component. Think back to the Covid quarantines that shut down entire ports, causing huge disruptions to imports and exports. In short, there is no favorable economy without a well-managed transportation chain. The number of ships and ports is still growing every day, as is the value the maritime industry creates for the global economy. Therefore, the industry is yearning for specialists who know this world inside out and know how to make thoughtful decisions that take their organization to a higher strategic level.

Students in the Maritime Transport track will learn to understand all aspects of the maritime value chain. That way, as a brand-new alumnus, you are immediately employable in the niche of your choice. Are you still amazed by maritime and inland shipping every day? With the right management skills, you can create sustainable change in the sector you are so passionate about.

To choose the Maritime Transport track is to choose...

A central position in the industry

Our campus is a few minutes' walk from Europe's second-largest port. This allows you to discover daily how the port network moves, with all its shipping lines, forwarding companies and brokers. Our central location as a switch point between other important ports (such as front-runner Rotterdam) ensures close contact with the entire global economy served from the water.

Guidance from sector professionals

Your future lecturers are all experienced professionals with a well-known name in the maritime industry. So a phone call to an interesting guest speaker from the field is quickly arranged. Moreover, the sector is happy to rely on our expertise to carry out research and scoop promising workers from our annual pool of new maritime transport managers.

A purely international approach

“From the classroom, the world opens up.” That is how our alumni describe their experience of the master's program and the AMS campus as a whole. No sector is more characterized by an international outlook than transportation. It is a main focus from the very beginning of the program, so that you are prepared for the multicultural environment you will find yourself in. Our horizon is the whole world.

Support from C-MAT, an official knowledge center of the University of Antwerp

The Master in Maritime Transport Management was founded in 1996 by the University of Antwerp and was further optimized there over the years. In 2020, it was transferred as an advanced master’s program to the partner school AMS, but the support of the umbrella expertise center C-MAT remained. Today, our students enjoy the know-how of 2 prestigious educational institutions.

Why Antwerp Management School?

Let's put it in the words of our students: “An education at AMS transforms you not only professionally, but also as a person.” We are thrilled to hear that again and again, because at AMS, your personal development is as important as your professional development. Soft skills are as important as hard skills. And practice is as important as theory. You will undergo this evolution in a warm environment, characterized by cooperation and helpfulness, not competition. Team players will feel right at home on our charming campus in the heart of Antwerp. With large windows, a cozy garden and modern classrooms, it is a real gem among the city schools.
