This class was tough.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that's interested in working in the maritime industry. From personal experience, i can honestly tell you that you will learn valuable information about the different shipping sectors. It's surprising how international shipping has a tremendous impact around the world.
The highlights of this course was the useful information that I learned. We explored the organizations and workings of the global shipping industry. The commercial and economic factors involved and how they impact the decision making process. We examined the supply/demand equation for maritime transportation, shipping cycles, shipping markets, ship finance, operating costs, regulatory agencies and market projections.
