    Graduate Diploma of Maritime Management [P6H]


    The maritime industry is at the forefront of international trade for sustainable development and is an exciting, dynamic, and challenging industry in which to work.

    The Graduate Diploma of Maritime Management provides practical and applied knowledge suitable for both higher level professional and managerial roles. The course will help you develop a holistic and analytical perspective of the industry and equips you to develop solutions for complex issues faced by both domestic and international maritime business activities.

    This is an ideal management course that will give you specific management skills appropriate for the maritime industry. The course provides you with the extensive knowledge and analytical skills required to meet challenges facing the maritime industry and to enhance your career opportunities in management positions in the industry.

    This Graduate Diploma course provides a pathway to the Master of Business Administration in Maritime Management.

    The course provides specialist coursework streams for students to pursue in-depth learning in a particular area of marine science. This is supported with two subjects all students undertake in research methodology.

    This course provides students with in-depth knowledge in their chosen area of coursework through a focus on both the quantitative elements of marine and Antarctic science as well as the application and translation of science into industry practice and management.

    The skills gained will assist graduates in contributing to world issues such as seafood production and security, climate change and marine stewardship.

    Graduates can choose to continue their study and articulate into the Master of Marine and Antarctic Science, and pursue research in IMAS' key research areas of oceanography and cryosphere, fisheries and aquaculture, ecology and biodiversity, climate change, oceans and Antarctic governance and ocean-earth systems.
