Training and education

How can we help you?

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 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.

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.

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.
