The Master of Science in Maritime and Air Transport Management at the University of Antwerp is a 1-year programme which prepares its graduates for the challenges faced by the transport sector today.


The main objective of the Master of Science in Maritime and Air Transport Management at the University of Antwerp is to help executive staff members from transport-related companies and organisations (shipping companies, port authorities, terminal operators, airlines, airports etc.) to become top-notch executives and researchers in the field. It is specifically designed with an international audience in mind and aimed at individuals with a background in economics or management focusing on transport-related matters.
