“The 1-year advanced master’s program in Maritime Transport offered by CMAT 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”.
