Cruise Management 2 is the continuation of Cruise Management 1. The minor Cruise Management 1 is obligatory for all students, who want to participate in Cruise Management 2 since it builds up on the students’ prior knowledge from CM1. The second module of Cruise Management gives the student the possibility to gain practical experience while going on a cruise ship for about 7 days. In addition students are required to perform qualitative and quantitative research projects in relation to the cruise industry.
Note: Cost for the field trip: 1000- 1500 euros. It is also possible to do CMII without participating in the field trip.
In order to fully prepare you for your Kies op Maat study at Stenden, two introduction days -together with incoming exchange students from abroad- are scheduled. During these days you will get a campus tour, meet teachers and staff, learn how to use (ICT) facilities on campus and you will be introduced to the student life. Moreover, we offer an introduction to our learning system: Problem Based Learning (PBL). Understanding the PBL system is fundamental for your successful study experience at Stenden. Therefore we expect you to be present these two days.
