Valencia – 23.06.21. Fundación Valenciaport is already preparing what will be the 30th edition of the Master’s Degree in Port Management and Intermodal Transport, a pioneering training programme of its kind and within the Spanish port logistics sector, which over the years has established itself as the most prestigious training programme in Spanish, specialising in trade, transport, logistics and ports of international prestige.
This postgraduate course, owned by the Port Authority of Valencia (PAV), managed by Fundación Valenciaport and title of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), includes a total of 600 hours corresponding to 60 ECTS credits, where the academic content, by a faculty of more than 70 professors from the national and international port logistics sector, are completed with debates, workshops and conferences on the latest trends in innovation in the sector and more than 25 visits to port facilities, including the ports of Valencia, Alicante, Castellón and Sagunto, as well as different elements that give added value: an outdoor training activity linked to strategy and leadership, teamwork performance sessions and an international study trip to London.
The 30th edition, which will begin on 14 October, has a renewed programme in which, as could not be otherwise, the digital transformation is the protagonist, as well as the ecological transition in which the ports are working or the latest trends in innovation, such as the start-ups and hackathons of the innovation ecosystem led by Fundación Valenciaport.
The methodologies are renewed to strengthen experiential learning in the classroom through the resolution of unique and original business cases on: contracting and conflict resolution, internationalisation of companies, import and export of goods, as well as the workshops on customs and maritime documentation, and the one dedicated to ValenciaportPCS, the technological platform created by the Port Authority of Valencia that offers services aimed at streamlining the operational processes of companies in the port community.
In this new edition, the Foundation is celebrating 30 years of the programme, and (as long as the health situation allows) the students are expected to participate in new networking activities.
The programme is organised around 8 subjects, responding to the needs of the logistics-port sector: Team management and leadership; Foreign trade and internationalisation; Maritime traffic and maritime law; Transport (Land, Rail, Air and Logistics and Competitiveness); Port planning; Port management; Docks and terminals and, finally, the TFM (Master’s Thesis).
It should be noted that both the job opportunities and internships in companies in the sector are the hallmark of this Master’s degree, which also offers the best chance for professionals in the sector and access to the labour market for recent graduates. A programme with an employability rate of over 95%.
In addition to the 29 editions held in Valencia, the Master in Port Management and Intermodal Transport, created in 1992 by the PAV, has been taught in its international edition in the countries of Panama and Colombia and with a blended model (online-presential) in Brazil, Argentina and soon in Mexico.
