Port management and strategic masterplanning

May 17 - June 25


This  course on Port Management and Strategic Masterplanning covers all essential aspects of modern management in the port, from strategy development to the implementation of a successful port management model.

Efficient management and organisation of a port authority involves making important strategic decisions. During this  course we will  discuss how to manage your financials, develop or review your masterplan, formulate your port development strategy and manage the strategic projects in your port.

Port masterplanning is an essential part of port design and development. A port masterplan explains the reason of existence of a port to all stakeholders involved.
We will discuss the factors to be included in port masterplanning, the importance of stakeholder management and the sustainable development of ports, illustrated by several port masterplans.

Why this programme ?
Even an experienced port professional needs tools, concepts and a network. This programme gives port managers the opportunity to extensively discuss themes like port planning and development, innovation, stakeholder management and port commercial business with international and experienced professionals. It provides you with the knowledge and skills to increase your effectiveness as a port manager.
