 Training within the scope of Distribution Channels and Logistics
Distribution channels are the backbone of national, regional, and international trade; they are designed according to the nature of goods, customers’ needs and distances travelled. Against, what might be though by many people, distribution channels serve the business-to-business and the business-to-consumer markets and they are far from being static.
Subject to strong market dynamics where customers’ needs frequently change, distribution channels need to be dynamic and above all innovative to allow channel participants to keep their competitiveness. Within this scope, logistics and supply chain management play a critical role since they put the designed distribution channels in operation.
Our range of courses help Students to find the differences and similarities between these two important commercial areas that quite often are mixed, when in reality they are two different things. The available Courses are:
  Management of Distribution/Marketing Channels
  Logistics and Supply Chain Management
  International Logistics

Logistics Management and Multimodal Transport

 Training within the scope of Maritime Economics
Maritime economics is a broad topic that involves numerous economic activities, which serve the movement of goods either in bulk or in cases. An insight into this Topic, shows the vast array of players that participate in these economic activities and indicates the background knowledge that are necessary to have to move goods between places by sea.
The most interesting thing about this hidden industry, responsible for the movement of 75% of world trade, is that it brings to our supermarket shelves even the tiniest products we need for our daily lives, relatively to which we never enquired ourselves about how they managed to get there.
Our range of courses helps Students to broaden their knowledge on different maritime economic fields, depending upon their field of activity. The available Courses can be seen below, but we expect to improve this range in the future.
