“I decided to enroll in the MTA Diploma in Superyacht Project Management Refit and Newbuilding because I wanted to increase my knowledge in PM within the superyacht industry. I have found the diploma content very useful overall and I have learnt many new things of PM applied to Superyacht building which is exactly what I was looking for. The ten modules are very well written and are enjoyable to read. The authors are all very experienced professionals who are active in the maritime industry. Also important is that the diploma is recognised by the University of Portsmouth as well as important companies and bodies of the maritime industry. I would definitely recommend this Diploma to anyone looking to grow into a position of project management with a superyacht shipyard or as a superyacht new build project manager.”
