The Master's degree programme in Maritime Management comprises 60 ECTS and the degree title is Master of Engineering or Master of Maritime Management, depending on your previous Bachelor's degree.

The programme has a special focus on building an overall understanding of the maritime field. The studies include management in general, maritime management and for the maritime industry distinctive financial and logistical features. Elective studies from Novia’s or our partners’ course programmes will give the student a possibility to obtain a more personal competence profile, especially if the degree thesis and electives studies complement each other.

Our working methods within the program ensure that you practice your project management and leadership skills and improve your professional communication skills in English.

The studies are optimised for flexible learning and studying, parallel with fulltime employment ashore or at sea. The meetings are used for solving study technical problems and some lecturing. The major part of the studies and instruction is conducted using a learning platform.


The Master's thesis is a demanding development project or research work combining theory, praxis and creation of new knowledge. The thesis subject and aim are based on requirements and needs of the maritime field. The theme of the thesis (30 ECTS) must be related to the fields studied, preferably agreed upon with an industry representative. The thesis thus works as a bridge between study and work, and gives students the opportunity to apply theoretical thinking to practical problems.

Alternatives for the thesis are, for example:

an investigation (e.g., investigation, mapping, analysis and / or evaluation)
a development project (e.g. development of working methods or activities)
product development (such as a prototype or a model)
