Port Management Program

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.

These challenges require port professionals with a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the complex dynamics of the port industry. The Port Management Program offers candidates the understanding and analytical mind-set needed to confront these challenges. During a multiple days training programma the candidates learn about the main aspect of world class port management. Themes like port planning and development, stakeholder management and port commercial business will be extensively discussed. The programme ends with an interactive port simulation game “Port Constructor”.

The Port Management Program will be offered together with STC International.

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.

“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.”
