The Blue MBA program at the Copenhagen Business School has clearly felt the financial slowdown, but while this has led to a crisis in many other industries, the educational institution has felt it as a growing interest in its maritime program.
“We have had our largest intake during the times when the industry was severely hit by the economic downturn. I believe the reason is that more and more the shipping and shipping related industries are realizing and appreciating the value of what the program provides to them. The program has over and over proven that the participants bring a lot of value to the companies they are representing,” says Blue MBA Program Director Irene Rosberg, CBS, referring to the fact that the students, in addition to their module assignments, also prepare a final Integrating Strategy Project which is based on their current company. Many students opt to use this project as an opportunity to implement much of the theory they are taught by the program to practical issues at their companies, and the companies get a chance to have a strategic problem analyzed, or the chance to try out a new venture.
