What Makes Us Special?

NMIT is the only maritime management school in South- East Asia and partners two reputable Dutch institutions.

Maritime Institute Willem Barentsz
One of NMIT’s Dutch partners, Maritiem Instituut Willem Barentsz (MIWB), has been known as one of the best equipped maritime training institutes in the Netherlands since 1875. The institute was named after ‘Willem Barentsz’, a gifted sailor, cartographer and explorer. MIWB has international linkages with maritime universities and institutes worldwide. It has a sophisticated state-of-the- art full mission simulator centre.

De Ruyter Maritime Institute
NMIT’s second partner is Maritiem Instituut de Ruyter, an equally influential maritime institution that was founded in 1903. It is one of the leading maritime educational institutes in Western Europe. The institute’s quality of education, its extensive international network, research facilities and consultancy services are top of the league. Strategically situated between the biggest ports of Europe (Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Ghent), the institute works together with all major carriers, port authorities and other businesses in the maritime and logistics industry. These two partners help NMIT in developing its courses and much more. After studying at NMIT, students get the opportunity to go on a two-week study tour in the Netherlands to visit Maritiem Instituut Willem Barentsz and Maritiem Instituut de Ruyter.
