About MPO
Ports and transport of goods by sea have always played a vital role in the global economy and will continue to be of great importance due to ever increasing globalisation and liberalisation of markets. Ports are the vital link between sea and land and the efficiency and effectiveness of ports are of utmost importance in the competitiveness of a port in a region. Just as important is the operational management of a wide variety of terminals, including its safety and security. Moreover, the finance and economics in a port environment determine the success of a total port. Still, human capital is of utmost importance in the growth of seaborne trade and its impact on ports.

The MPO programme includes all aspects of modern port operations and is a valuable asset to your organization and country. It provides the necessary tools to take up a future leadership role or management position at a port authority, port terminal or shipping related organisation and teaches how to make informed management decisions regarding functional issues. The programme is especially aimed at the practical side of port operations and is a valuable step for people seeking to reach a diploma in the field of Port & Terminal Management and Operations.
