Valencia, 12 April 2022. – Last weekend took place the last of the classroom training sessions of the 2nd edition of the Master in Logistics and Port Management in Brazil, a programme led by the Valenciaport Foundation and supported by the Universitat Politècnica de València, which was a great success in its first edition and has managed to consolidate despite the pandemic.
It is worth remembering that the Valenciaport Foundation inaugurated this 2nd edition of the Master in Brasilia in October 2020, but due to the pandemic, some of the face-to-face weeks were reconverted to virtual mode, and others were postponed until mobility could be recovered, as the networking that takes place between the teaching staff and the professionals who participate in this programme is essential to enrich the training.
It should also be noted that, as this Master’s programme is taught in mixed mode (66% virtual and 34% face-to-face), it was possible to reduce the impact of the face-to-face classes that did not take place and which have now been made available.
The 31 students of this edition, all of them professionals of the sector, attended last weekend the face-to-face classes given in Brasilia by Juan Manuel Díez, Head of Strategic Planning and Innovation of the Port Authority of Valencia, who spoke to them about business processes in ports, and Óscar Magdalena, Director of Noatum Castellón, who trained them on terminal management.
The students are scheduled to go on a study trip to Valencia from the 16th to the 20th of next May to visit the port facilities and to receive their last face-to-face classes.
The Valenciaport Foundation is already preparing the 3rd edition of this master’s programme in Brazil, which is scheduled to start in September 2022.
