DIPLOMA IN MARITIME BUSINESS

WHAT IT IS

As the world's busiest seaport and one of the world 's largest container ports, there is a continuous demand for maritime and logistics-related organisations involved in a wide range of shipping business activities in Singapore. The Diploma in Maritime Business (DMB) offered at Singapore Polytechnic aims to train its graduates to meet these needs.

The DMB is a practice-oriented course that links theory and practice through hands-on training, case studies and field visits. It is an extensive programme that prepares its students to be versatile, enabling them to gain employment in various sectors within the maritime industry.

Students are required to complete a six-month shore-based internship during the second year which provides them with first-hand experience at an organisation.
