Close and personal guidance

To ensure consistency and quality of the study, and a close and personal guidance of all participants, a dedicated Academic Director will follow the students from the very beginning until the end. Students will also be supported early on by their Master Thesis supervisor.

Build a network

You will meet participants from a range of different backgrounds, from private companies to non-profit organisations, and public administration. What they have in common is a strong interest in the seafood industry, and together they bring invaluable industry experience to the classroom. The goal is to provide relevant competence at a high and appropriate academic level, allowing participants to relate general MBA topics to the seafood context, and to build a network for learning and further development outside the classroom sessions.

The students will develop new knowledge, gain skills, and increase the general competence that is required to lead the seafood industry into a more sustainable future with innovative ideas across the entire value chain.

Target group

The specialisation primarily targets professionals working in or wishing to work in the seafood industry or related industries. This includes professionals in public administration, suppliers of goods, services and technologies to the seafood industry, and many other industries where the need for strong business and management skills are increasingly important to succeed in a world that is becoming increasingly global and competitive.

The specialisation is suitable for both top and mid-level managers of all types of firms and organizations as well as specialists and professionals working in public administration or in trade and industry organizations. In particular, the specialisation aims to recruit international candidates in addition to excellent national applicants.
