Valencia – 20.05.19. Last Friday, the director of the APV, Francesc Sánchez, gave a talk entitled “Presentation of the Port of Valencia: Valenciaport in figures, its traffic and its infrastructure” to a group of students from the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) as part of the 3rd free conference “Activate Your Future. Do a Master at the UPV”, organized by the aforementioned entity.
During the event, the Director of Training of the Fundación Valenciaport, Ana Rumbeu, together with Vicent Esteban Chapapría, Professor of Ports and Coasts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, presented the academic programme of the Master’s and the different activities, visits and internships that it includes, emphasising the many job opportunities that students can choose from once they have completed this postgraduate course. Ana Rumbeu also presented the two scholarships that the Juan Arizo Serrulla Foundation will award as a registration aid for the 28th edition of the Master in Port Management and Intermodal Transport.
In addition to the talk, a group of nearly 100 students had the opportunity to make a boat trip to the port of Valencia in which they got to know the different terminals and facilities of the port enclave by the hand of José Martín Robles.
The final objective of this activity was to show the practical approach of the different postgraduate degrees of the UPV and in particular the Master in Port Management and Intermodal Transport (MGPT), a postgraduate degree owned by the Port Authority of Valencia (APV), directed by the Fundación Valenciaport and, since the XXVII edition, a degree owned by the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV).
In addition to the 600 teaching hours divided into the modules of Business Management and Direction, Foreign Trade, Maritime Transport, Land Transport, Port Management and Air Transport, plus the end-of-master’s work, the programme has different elements that give it added value: an outdoor training activity linked to strategy and leadership, teamwork performance sessions, an international study trip to London, a job bank through the Fundación Valenciaport and UPV Alumni Association, and the possibility of doing work experience in companies in the sector.
The MGPT has established itself as the most internationally prestigious training programme in Spanish, specialising in ports and transport, and is widely popular with professionals and postgraduates in Spain, Europe and Latin America. In addition to the 27 editions held in Valencia (Spain), the Master has been taught, in its international edition, in the countries of Panama and Colombia and will continue its international projection with new editions in other countries.
