To augment classroom learning, the students have the opportunity to attend a series of talks covering topics that impact the trading and maritime sectors called the Industry Speaker Series.
These practitioner-led sessions enhance learning as the trainers can draw on relevant personal experiences to bring debates to life and create resonance with students.
The lectures cover a wide range of topics, including technology, risk and liner shipping amongst many others.
"Mr Lars Christiansen, Senior Managing Director of Hapag-Lloyd, gave students an overview of the global liner trade, with the emphasis on ASEAN. Students learnt the latest trends and disruptions in the container liner shipping industry. Real-life examples were also used to show students how companies adopt digital technology in the container liner trade." - Container Liners, 7 February 2020
