Quali sono gli obiettivi della formazione?

International shipping and transport logistics management is a lively and interesting subject to study, with an emphasis on developing practical skills and academic and professional knowledge.

There is a strong emphasis on interactive and student-centred learning methods, including case studies and simulation exercises. Local and international visits to companies and other organisations are arranged, and senior practitioners are invited as guest speakers to share their practical experiences with students.

All students within the Faculty of Business are encouraged to participate in the Whole Person Development Programme (WPDP), which includes a range of extracurricular activities, such as leadership training camps, peer tutoring, mentorship, and overseas and the Chinese mainland exchanges.



Each student may be assigned a mentor who is an experienced executive or a manager in the business world and who provides advice and support and helps students to plan their careers and prepare for their first jobs after graduation.

If they wish, and subject to availability, the BBA students can spend a semester studying at another university overseas or in the Chinese mainland and have the credits counted towards their PolyU degree.

Work-Integrated Education (WIE)
To graduate, every student must complete 100 hours (3 training credits) of WIE. The Department has developed opportunities for students to work in firms either during the summer vacation or as part-timers. Summer placements may be found in Hong Kong, the Chinese mainland or overseas. These, and other forms of work experience, can count towards the WIE requirement.
