International port management courses

Port development and management present major challenges including adjusting ports to rapidly changing market dynamics. Challenges like how to make plans about the future port infrastructure, needs of a country without jeopardizing the current port activity play a significant role in the course. These are the challenges which governments, port authorities, and port operators increasingly have to contend with. Together with partners, the Port of Rotterdam offers port professionals a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the complex dynamics of the port industry via different training (personalised) programs.

Port Executive Leadership Circle: Leadership skills for port executives and captains of industry

Rapidly changing market dynamics present ports with major challenges. A mind shift is required to look critically at existing business models, while simultaneously developing new ones. Leading transitional change requires a different type of leadership. This is why Erasmus University Rotterdam and Port of Rotterdam are combining their knowledge and expertise to offer The Port Executive Leadership Circle. This five-day executive programme allows professionals from port authorities, port stakeholders or captains of industries, to be part of an ongoing cycle of learning journeys, while enabling collaboration with other ports in a growing international network of port executives.

Port Management Programme (due to Covid-19 postponed until further notice)

Do you want to learn about the main aspect of world class port management during a 5-days course in the port of Rotterdam? During this course, themes like port planning and development, innovation, energy transition, digitalisation, stakeholder management and port commercial business will be extensively discussed. The course is concluded with the interactive port simulation game 'Port Constructor'.

The Port Management Program made me think in wider perspective. For example: excellent utilization of land and location and learning new ideas in different areas like environmental issues and communication.
