SUNY Maritime College Announce European Study Tour

Monday, April 09, 2012
All SUNY students are welcome to join SUNY Maritime College’s popular summer, European Study Tour, a 28-day course that includes visits to prominent European transportation and trade venues, will offer undergraduate Maritime students, majoring in International Transportation and Trade (I.T.T.), a unique first-hand opportunity to learn about and experience international transportation and trade issues.

This year, the class will visit European ports and cities where students will meet with ship owners, trade ministers, heads of port authorities, terminal operators, warehousing operators, and others about critical 21st century issues of global trade, commerce and transportation.  The class will begin in late May and will end in mid- June.

“The impact of the European Union, supply chain management, port and terminal operations, importing and exporting, intermodal transportation, manufacturing, security, managing risk, business fraud and ethics are among the topics that we will cover,” said Dr. Robert Edmonds, the SUNY Maritime College professor who will lead the class.

“The world becomes a smaller place when a student sees that European maritime face many of the same issues as their American counterparts. The real value comes in learning about cross-cultural problems and solutions and in building international relationships that last through one’s career!”  noted Dr. Larry Howard, Chairman of SUNY Maritime College’s Global Business and Transportation Department.

The fee is approximately $5,600.
