Global Maritime Professional Initiative (GMPI)
This is a comprehensive project to formulate a vision of a Global Maritime Professional (GMP) to meet the envisaged needs of industry and rapidly evolving educational and career context while catering for the professional development aspirations of individual seafarers.
Based on the vision, the project describes what competences the graduates of IAMU member universities should acquire at the time of their graduation and further develops a set of learning outcomes to firmly obtain competences to be a GMP. The goal of GMPI is to develop a guideline of the curriculum development for IAMU member universities, “Global Maritime Professional – Body of knowledge: Knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for a GMP”.
