Learning Outcomes

  • Our program serves the international maritime business interests of the Commonwealth and the nation. The emphasis on curricular design is aligned to the educational philosophy of the Academy: Learn–Do–Learn. 
  • This successful learning model has been developed through opportunities for the practical application of theories and concepts learned through the sea term and cooperative experiences in real world corporate settings. 
  • The mission of the IMB department is to create a disciplined, hard‐working and positive‐thinking professional who will be generally well‐versed in all functional areas of international business, and at the same time, will have specific expertise in the maritime sector, where such expertise will be earned as much from practical experience as from a rigorous academic program.
