Here comes the “Bachelor Degree in Business with Specialization in Management for Yachting Captains” organized by GY Academy. What is the goal of this project? To relaunch skills and credibility in the global market of people working in the Italian maritime sector. This is to guarantee quality and protect the professionalism of captains, but not only. It is also an opportunity to enter this world with an official certificate.
How does the course develop? The training course is able to provide all the necessary skills to the captain of a boat to manage it: this means knowing a yacht from its design to refitting operations. The degree-level corresponds to an MQF Level 6.
Captains – maritime professionals with years of experience in the industry who have not graduated, but who wish to do so without having to go over everything they have already learned and who have recognized up to 50% of their previous work experience within the degree course;
Freshers – for those who start from scratch and want to enter the boating management industry
Graduates – students who already have a previous degree and are looking for a career change or want to enter the yachting world
Enrollment requirements include completion of secondary school, matriculation examination or professional qualification (MQF level 5), or at least one year of documented maritime service.
The GY Academy (based in Malta) – in collaboration with Fondazione ISYL (Italian Superyacht Life) and NAVIGO, a nautical innovation and development company – have developed the degree with this program.
