    • Course Syllabus:
    • International Shipping Management tends to introduce fundamental knowledge of shipping management and business. Several contents are mentioned:
      PART 1 Introduction of the Shipping and Sea Transport
      We give an overview of the market covering the transport system, the demand for sea transport, the merchant fleet, how transport is provided, the role of ports, shipping company organization and political influences.
      PART 2 The Merchant Fleet and Transport Supply
      Part 2 is concerned with three key aspects of the supply of merchant ships: the fleet of vessels; shipbuilding and demolition; and the regulatory framework which influences the cost of operating ships and the conditions under which ships can be traded. In this part we discuss the design of merchant ships. The aim is to focus on the way designs have evolved to meet technical and economic objectives. three objectives of ship design: efficient cargo containment, operational efficiency and cost were discussed.
      PART 3 Financing Ships and Shipping Companies
      We discuss the practical issues facing a firm. How are shipping costs and revenues structured? How are ships financed? How does the industry make a commercial return on investment? This part discusses the costs and revenues of operating merchant ships. Costs are divided into voyage costs and operating costs.. The final section focuses on company accounts, including the income statement, balance sheet and cashflow statement. We finish with a discussion of cashflow analysis.
      Finance is the most important item in the shipowner’s cashflow budget. after a review of the many ways ships have been financed in the past, brief explanation of the world capital markets were given, which showing where the money comes from. Finally the four main ways of financing ships: equity, debt, newbuilding finance, and leasing were discussed.
      PART 4 The Regulation of the Maritime Industry
      This part examines the impact of regulation on shipping industry. We identify three key regulatory institutions: the classification societies, the flag states and the coastal states. Each plays a part in making the rules which govern the industry activities of shipowners. The classification societies, through the authority of the ‘class ertificate’, supervise the technical safety of the merchant ships. The flag states make the laws which govern the technical and commercial activities of shipowners registered with them. Finally, the coastal states police the ‘good conduct’ of ships in their waters, notably on environmental issues.
      Based on the knowledge learnt together with the skill trained, the graduates are expected to obtain basic capability of managing a department at an international shipping company as a junior and/or senior manager. This fundamental course offers basic theories, updated guest lectures, and research opportunities. Students with strong background in relative domain and basic statistics are welcome to enroll. Home works, term papers and several quizzes are required. English is the only language used at class.
