Middle East and Asia
Since its foundation in 1978, the Anatomy of Shipping course has benefited over 2000 shipping professionals. Together with the other courses in our Cambridge series of professional development programmes, over 4,000 participants make up the Alumni. Shipowners, ship managers, bankers, charterers, marine superintendents, brokers, shipbuilders and cargo interests — all sectors are represented in the student roll.
Continuing with the now well-established methods pioneered by our Cambridge programmes, participants on the Middle East and Asia courses will receive comprehensive study materials including all the lectures in digital format and, on completion of the course, a Certificate of Attendance.
In programmes of lectures and discussion groups, students from a diverse range of business backgrounds develop strong working relationships. Personalities, skills, knowledge, opinions and strengths all contribute to a highly-focused learning experience within an educational setting, removed from the daily pressures of the workplace.
Cambridge is one of the most historic cities in Europe with a tradition of scholarship spanning the centuries. Its magnificent colleges draw thousands of visitors to the city each year.
Apart from the University’s scholastic achievements (over 70 Nobel Laureates have studied or worked here), Cambridge also boasts fine museums and private collections which form part of the cultural heritage of Great Britain. The Fitzwilliam Museum's collection of Egyptian artefacts, Chinese ceramics and European art; the Sedgwick Museum's reconstruction of the Jurassic Sea and the Cambridge Folk Museum's display of curiosities are but three of the many noteworthy exhibitions that create a lasting impression on visitors.
