The story of Shipping Union…
Shipping Union was founded in December 2014 after several weeks of planning, discussing and brain-storming. Were there a need for a student union for a class that only had 23 students? Indeed there was, because from September 2015, the class will be expanded to in total 100 students.
We work to create a better bond between students at the BSc International Shipping and Trade from different batches. But we don’t stop here. Since day 1, we have been taught that shipping is a networking business and we are therefore expanding. Students with maritime electives in their MSc programme at CBS as well as trainees from shipping companies are eligible for a membership – which we believe that will be valuable in the future, when we all are out working in the industry.
So far, we have hosted several social events at the BSc programme. We will also have guest lectures exclusive for members of Shipping Union CBS in a wide range of topics. As an example, we had Maersk Broker giving a guest lecture in April 2015. And as of September 2015, we strive to have entered a team in the DBU-football league, representing Shipping Union CBS.
We are a 100 % student-driven organization – and we need your help to continue providing the Shipping-classes with a wide variety of events. Join us and be a part of a fantastic team, everyone is welcome!
