MBA for mariners

We all would have thought of enhancing our skills beyond the typical shipping knowledge and would have searched for various options at some point of time in our career. The 1st thing which comes to our mind mostly for higher education is MBA as it leads to senior roles, better salary, more recognised and acceptable and possibly a safer option. Some of us would have prepared for MBA, applied and either completed or stopped mid-way for various reasons.

In this session, we plan to connect with mariners who have completed MBA (Full time and distance learning) from different parts of the world and understand from them:

a) Why they wanted to do MBA
b) Why did they choose the mode of education they did
c) Key learnings from MBA
d) Did MBA help in job progression and better salary
e) What are the things which you could have done better
e) Whom would you recommend to do aMBA

We intend to have this webinar in a panel discussion mode which will be moderated by Capt. Gaurav Rana who has himself done MBA from IIM-Ahmedabad and worked in IBM for 4 years. 


We would have the following persons in the panel:
