Pätevöidy monipuolisiin merenkulun johtotehtäviin

Merenkulun ammattilaisella tulee olla kykyä johtaa organisaatioita sekä ihmisten että strategisten tavoitteiden näkökulmasta. Pitää myös olla kykyä huomioida toimialan kilpailutilanne, vaatimukset ja ympäristö ja juuri näihin tulevaisuuden tarpeisiin Xamkin merenkulun koulutus osaltaan vastaa. Koulutuksen tavoitteena on johtamistaitojen kehittäminen. Tavoitteena on myös parantaa valmiuksiasi toimia merenkulkualan elinkeinon ja hallinnon asiantuntija- ja johtotehtävissä tulevaisuuden tarpeita vastaavasti.

Merenkulun johtamisen YAMK-tutkinnon suoritettuasi pätevöidyt monipuolisiin merenkulun johtotehtäviin. Voit toimia paremmin merenkulun kansainvälisessä toimintaympäristössä mm. itsenäisissä kehittämis- ja asiantuntijatehtävissä, kehittämisprojektien johtajana, esimiehenä tai yrittäjänä. Tutkintonimikkeesi on joko merikapteeni (ylempi AMK) tai insinööri (ylempi AMK), riippuen aikaisemmasta koulutustaustastasi. Ylempi AMK-tutkinto antaa saman kelpoisuuden kuin yliopiston maisteritutkinto.

Koulutus on suunnattu AMK-tutkinnon suorittaneille merikapteeneille tai merenkulun insinööreille, joilla on vähintään kaksi vuotta alaan liittyvää työkokemusta tutkinnon suorittamisen jälkeen. (not translated)
