Abstract: Some universities have their maritime education situated in faculty of engineering while few are included in faculty of business. Emphasises are apparently different for those in faculty of engineering from those in faculty of business. The maritime business curriculum has to fulfill the requirements of accreditation of different international organizations e.g. STCW95 and AACSB. This paper is to study the curriculum developed in maritime education at the Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and it is not easy to fulfill the requirements of different international organizations. The quality of maritime business curriculum offered by educational institutions is critical in ensuring the quality of future shipping executives for the shipping community in Hong Kong.
