About the course

With the rise of blockchain technology in the 21st century, it has certainly proved its potential to revolutionise the maritime industry.

Conducted by leading faculty members and Maritime industry experts, the BMD programme provides a firm foundation for understanding the key concepts behind blockchain, evaluating the usage of blockchain in your maritime business, developing strategies for successful blockchain implementation and more.
