The graduate will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to function as a manager who is mindful of the complementary and competing multi- and inter-disciplinary interests that influence the design, implementation, and outcome of the management process in marine affairs. ,

The MMM curriculum is designed to develop outstanding marine management professionals, through promotion of synergies between the humanities, social sciences, professions and natural sciences, who will demonstrate broad awareness of the need for interdisciplinary knowledge and viewpoints, as well as the skills and tools needed to make informed decisions. The MMM degree consists of required core courses in the marine, social, management and political sciences and a choice of more than 60 elective courses offered by the major graduate faculties and professional schools.
