The Business of Transport


Newcastle University has introduced a combined MSc in Transport & Business Management. The course offers transport engineers and civil engineering graduates the chance to develop business skills while furthering their working knowledge of transport issues. The MSc in Transport & Business Management begins this September and is a joint initiative between the University's Transport Engineering Group and its School of Management. The course can be studied on either a full-time or part-time basis. Business modules looking at finance, human resource management and entrepreneurship can be chosen to accompany transport topics such as Travel Demand Forecasting, Evaluation of Transport Schemes and Transport Safety. Newcastle University's head of transport engineering Dr John Nelson said: 'The changing nature of the transport industry means that transport professionals are under increasing pressure to develop new expertise in business, finance and management, while at the same time retaining and enhancing core transport skills.'
