The Maritime Economics Track (MET) is a maritime-focused cluster of courses within the Economics major, designed to give students a distinctive preparation for maritime-related roles in the industry and government organisations. The MET is offered by Singapore Management University (SMU) and seeks to develop essential knowledge and contextualised skills relevant for the analysis of economic issues in the maritime sector among its students.

MET students will also have access to industry scholarships and experiential learning opportunities, including industry study missions, site visits, local and overseas internships, and non-credit courses presented by industry professionals.
