Meet the Programme Manager

Irene Rosberg

We celebrate our Founding Programme Director, Irene Rosberg, because through her unassailable work ethic and dedication the programme has maintained a vital relevance to the sectors served. So far the programme has graduated over 300 candidates – from 50 plus countries – who all hold senior management positions globally and here in our Danish capitol which is one of the leading hubs of shipping innovation.

Irene recruits classes as diverse as possible both geographically and industry specific, and she has helped bridge the gender gap by encouraging female executives. She emphasises the essential "human element" to the digitalisation of the industry and ensures that participants learn from each other, their tutors, and are integrated into a lasting and close network of professionals so that lifelong learning is made possible. It is for these reasons and so many more that the Blue MBA is recognised to be the #1 Shipping and Logistics MBA in the world.
