Cruise industry veteran executive Tom Russell, chief operating officer at Seattle-based Global Voyages Group, presented a cruise curriculum to executive MBA students at Shanghai Maritime University.

The two-year program aims to cultivate high-quality management professionals in various aspects of the cruise industry, including ship construction, operation and management, cruise ship hotel management, marketing, destinations, cruise terminal management, finance and insurance.

'The keen interest and engagement shown by the course participants, the various cruise industry-related business concepts they are developing and the genuine desire to deepen their understanding certainly confirms the expectations that China will play a major role as a source market in the future of the cruise industry,' Russell said.

'It was a great honor and pleasure to be invited to present and to spend time with new potential colleagues in the industry from this part of the world.'
