3. Course contents *

This course in Maritime Economics and Business focuses on issues that shape the maritime transport market. How is this market organised in practice? What role do the authorities play and how do they impact on the behaviour of shipping companies? How are price and cargo affected? What kind of business strategies do shipowners pursue? How are market forecasts made? Which kind of vessel is best suited for deployment on specific routes and/or loops, or for specific cargo types? These and other crucial issues are analysed by means of economic tools.
