Today, 40 students from 22 different countries studying at the World Maritime University (WMU) in Malmö, Sweden, visit J. Lauritzen’s head office in Copenhagen. The students who are currently conducting their maritime studies with focus on ship management and port management had a chance to discuss both hands-on experience and different strategies behind technical management in a ship owning company.

The visit is part of the World Maritime University’s field trip to Copenhagen where the students gain insight into the Danish shipping environment by visiting the Danish Shipowners association, D/S NORDEN and through meetings with J. Lauritzen’s business units Lauritzen Bulkers and Lauritzen Kosan.

“We are really pleased that we once again can offer a team of students from the World Maritime University welcome to some exciting days in Copenhagen” says Per Winther Christensen, Director, Nautical Department in the Danish Shipowners’ association who yesterday welcomed the students in Copenhagen. “The students will be introduced to both the political and technical aspects of the rules and regulations that companies must follow in the daily operations and the company visits ensure that they also learn about the operational challenges. This is great knowledge for the students who in a few years might have leading positions in public administrations."

The students come from Albania, Angola, Chile, China, Costa Rica, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Mongolia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Panama, Philippines, Republic of Korea, South Africa, Turkey, United States of America, Venezuela, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
