On 22 September 2017 family, friends, professors and representatives from the business community gathered for the Graduation Ceremony of the master programme Maritime Economics and Logistics (MEL).
In a festive and international setting, with over 18 different nationalities present, Professor Bert de Groot conferred the Master title to the MEL class of 2017, the 17th class to graduate from the MEL programme. Graduates have the opportunity to remain connected through the MEL alumni network, which has members in over 70 countries. Many alumni were present at the graduation.
The MEL programme is a joint program of the Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) and the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) of Erasmus University Rotterdam.
The participating schools are NVAO, KNAW and Triple Crown, AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS accredited.
The MEL Office has the pleasure to announce that Erasmus University Rotterdam has been accepted by SallieMae for the smart option loan.

The MEL Office has the pleasure to announce that the first formal Alumni Event will be held in Athens, Greece on June 26th, 2015.
Should you wish to register for this event, please send an email to email@example.com.
Please find below a personal message from Christos Varias, MEL Region Manager of Greece, who is looking forward to welcome MEL Alumni from all over the globe to the first formal MEL Alumni Event.
“Dear fellow Alumni,
Studying at MEL gave us all the opportunity to not only explore and broaden our knowledge about shipping but also to make good friends and hopefully colleagues one day.
The MEL faculty has taken the initiative to strengthen the MEL Alumni Community in several ways and one of it was to appoint one MEL Alumnus from each country as the Region Manager of that particular country, hoping to strengthen the bond between MEL Alumni living and working in the same region as well as to welcome visiting MEL Alumni to their region. Taking this opportunity, I would like to invite all MEL Alumni living and working in Greece, but also all MEL Alumni who might be in Greece on the 26th of June to the first formal MEL Alumni event in Athens.
The event will take place at ‘’Ark restaurant bar’’ at Asteria Glyfada, Grigoriou Lampraki 2, on Friday 26 of June at 18:30.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
Christos L. Varias
MEL Regional Manager of Greece”
