About us

For 25 years now, the

Hamburg School of Shipping and Transportation

offers furthering education in the field of shipping and tourism in close cooperation with renowned institutions and experts.

It is recognized by the ICS.

The HSST portfolio has been completed by the HSST Academy since January 2010. Two bachelor degree programs are offered here so far.

The Bachelor of Shipping, Trade and Transport (BSc) degree program has been available since January 2010. Already mentioned in the same year in the study “Maritime Qualification Competencies at the Hamburg Location” as a unique academic degree for the field of Maritime Economics.

The program was expanded in January 2011 to include the Bachelor of International Travel Tourism Management (BA).


Highly qualified professors and lecturers from Germany and abroad offer a portfolio of topics in a part-time course of study that prepares students for the demands of a globally interconnected working world in a way that is specific to their profession.


Our two degree programs begin in January and June of each year. You can apply to study with us at any time.


The goal of the courses we offer is to expand the development opportunities of young professionals in the transportation and tourism industry and to strengthen dual education.


Our degrees are internationally recognized and awarded by our cooperation partner London Metropolitan University. They are based on a dual apprenticeship and ideally combine academic skills with professional expertise and experience.
