As India’s economy grows, demand for goods will go up. With the Government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign, exports from India will increase in the next few years leading to increased movement of cargo, within the country’s borders and beyond.
This means that India’s Shipping and Logistics industry is poised for growth, generating excellent career & job opportunities.
Students, so far, have opted for traditional courses leading to an oversupply of graduates and fewer jobs.
The Indian ports and shipping sector plays a vital role in sustaining growth in the country’s trade and commerce.
India is the sixteenth largest maritime country in the world, with a coastline of about 7,517 km. The Indian Government plays an important role in supporting the ports sector.
Latest Developments and upcoming projects in the Indian Shipping Industry
The above Indian government’s latest Policies, development plans and focus on building New Port Infrastructure, will boost the Shipping & Logistics Industry prospects in India. This will lead to huge job prospects and opportunities in the Shipping & Logistics sector.
However, there was no sufficient attempt in our Country to train Candidates in Shipping and Port Logistics Sectors in India.
Thus, there is a dire need for an Institution for training of Candidates on Commercial aspects and management of Shipping particularly in the wake of expansion of Indian Maritime Industry and Shipping activities in our Country.
Precisely to fill up this need, we have started this Academy.
East Coast Maritime Academy is offering innovative Vocational Training courses such as Diploma, Advance Diploma, PG Diploma, BBA & MBA in Shipping and Logistics to bridge this gap.
These Courses train students in the various aspects of the shipping and logistics industry like export-import, supply chain management, air cargo logistics, warehouse management, chartering, marine insurance etc. The vocational Training makes the students as prospective mangers and is suitable for both boys and girls, especially as these are land based jobs. There is a dearth of trained professionals in the industry and the industry is waiting with open arms to absorb worthy candidates.
