The MBA in Shipping and Logistic was the right complement to my experience in the maritime field.  
It gave me that mind openness and broader knowledge that I needed.  
I am firmly convinced that this program,  although not yet completed, has a large responsibility for my promotion to Vice President of Technical Operations. Definitely a game changer!
