3. Course contents *

Transport firms operate in a complex environment. Managers must have a good understanding of this environment and be able to interpret the signals it omits and the implications for their own business. This enables them to act in order to enhance their firm’s competitive strength. The course focuses on a number of specific areas: the legal and regulatory framework within which transport firms operate; structural changes to the global economy; environmental issues and sustainability; risk management as a crucial policy variable in the maritime and air transport sectors; locational policy.
