FACTS 2013 1

The influence of the World Maritime University within today’s maritime community cannot be overstressed. Those who pass through its various programs go on to become global maritime leaders, experts and professionals. They increase and enhance the capacity of their countries and help to shape and develop effective policies for the maritime community on both the national and the global level. Koji Sekimizu IMO Secretary-General WMU Chancellor


The World Maritime University (WMU), in Malmö, Sweden, is a postgraduate maritime university under the United Nations, founded by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1983 as its premier institution for maritime postgraduate education, research, and capacity building.


WMU aspires to be the world’s leading maritime university for postgraduate education and research.


As a center of excellence for postgraduate maritime education, our mission is to serve the global maritime community through education, research and capacity building to ensure safe, secure and efficient shipping on clean oceans. WMU: • Contributes to maritime capacity building and the development of effective policies for the global maritime community • Helps build a sustainable world through maritime education and research • Educates future global maritime leaders, experts and professionals • Provides a forum for international collaboration on maritime transportation


WMU is governed by Charter and Statutes, approved by IMO Assembly, which is made up of delegations from 170 IMO Member States and 3 Associate Members. The WMU Board of Governors (BoG) is appointed by the IMO Secretary-General, Koji Sekimizu, and consists of 30 members, who each serve two-year renewable terms. The Board of Governors usually meets annually, chaired by WMU’s Chancellor, who to date has been the IMO Secretary-General. The BoG reports to IMO Council which consists of the 40 leading maritime states. An 11-person Executive Board (EB) is appointed by the IMO Secretary-General to help facilitate the work of WMU, provide oversight between sessions of the BoG, give directions and guidelines as necessary, consider draft plans of work and budgets, report to the BoG, and meet no less than three times a year. Members of the EB serve renewable two-year terms. The current EB Chairman, Torben Skaanild, is Secretary General/CEO of BIMCO.

Field Study Program Students in the Malmö M.Sc. in Maritime Affairs benefit

from a unique program of global field studies at host organizations such as shipping companies, ports authorities, maritime administrations, and other governmental and non-governmental organizations around the world. Cooperation with a range of global institutions offers students a unique opportunity to experience the application of the latest theories and technologies in real-life maritime situations, and to forge bonds with a global network of maritime professionals. Field studies are a highlight of the WMU experience and vary each year by specialization. Typical destinations include:

Gender WMU is actively working to implement the UN Millenium Development Goal regarding the empowerment of women. Until the late 1990s, female students made up less than 5% of the Malmö intake. A recruitment strategy with strong support from fellowship donors has resulted in the proportion of female students rising to around a third of the annual intake. Roughly a quarter of WMU faculty are female.

RESEARCH WMU’s research program has been invigorated with new research projects and a restructured Ph.D. program. Research is part of WMU’s mission and was prioritized in the Strategic Vision Plan 2010-2015. Research projects will currently generate a gross income of ~€1.6 million. The research budget is not part of the regular WMU operational budget; income must equal expenditure, therefore research does not generate a net profit. Besides EU funding, WMU is a contractor for IMO and UN agency projects, as well as other maritime organizations worldwide. Funds from research projects support Research Associates and Research Assistants, and have extended WMU’s publication record, reputation, and international impact.

2012 WMU Retreat




University Building WMU’s building is a gift-in-kind from the City of Malmö and the University’s current 2,600m2 home dates from the 1960s. In late 2014, thanks to the continued generosity of the City of Malmö, WMU will move to the historic Tornhuset building in the city center. Combined with a dramatic new addition designed by renowned architect Kim Utzon in partnership with Tyrone Cobcroft, the new location will provide WMU with 5,600m2 of outstanding facilities for growth and expansion including a large auditorium and new research facilities. The City of Malmö is generously providing the building, yet additional support is needed to equip the facilities to the highest standard. For Information on how to contribute to the new facilities visit Library The WMU Library offers a specialized resource for the university’s core activities. The print collection consists of more than 20,000 titles, including books, reports, and documents from IMO and other UN agencies, audio-visual materials, and over 1,700 WMU dissertations. The library maintains a core of 350 periodical print titles, and has access to thousands more in electronic format via database subscriptions and commercial maritime web sites. The library portal address is WMU Journal & Book Series During the past decade, the WMU Journal of Maritime Affairs has become a well-recognized, leading maritime journal. In 2010, WMU signed a publishing and distribution contract with Springer Verlag to increase the subscription and publication impact. In 2012 an additional contract was signed with Springer establishing the book series WMU Studies in Maritime Affairs. The first titles, Farthing on International Shipping by Dr. Proshanto K. Mukherjee and Mark Brownrigg and Maritime Piracy edited by Dr. Maximo Q. Mejia, Jr., Dr. Chie Kojima, and Mark Sawyer are expected to be published in 2013. Dr. Jens-Uwe Schröder-Hinrichs and Dr. Max Mejia continue to serve as editor and co-editor, respectively. Each electronic issue of the Journal contains at least four open access articles, increasing citations and expanding the global impact of the Journal.


Henrik Smith Residence The majority of WMU students in Malmö live at the Henrik Smith Residence (HSR), located 3 km from WMU. HSR has 216 single study-bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and access to cooking facilities. Rooms at HSR may be rented by non-students during low residency periods.




WMU’s total budget in 2012 was €9.2 million, a nearly 20% increase over 2011, due to increased enrollment and increased development efforts, leading to a net budget surplus in 2012 as in 2011. WMU relies on voluntary contributions without any guarantee of continued support from year to year. In contrast, universities worldwide receive the majority of their income from their government, as OECD figures demonstrate ( In Europe, on average, the government contributes 74% of universities’ funding. IMO, which is WMU’s equivalent of a national government, contributes 3% of the annual operational budget. Sweden, WMU’s host country, contributes 30-40% annually. Japan is a vital contributor, both to the operational budget (Nippon Foundation Professorial Chairs) and in the form of student fellowships (Ocean Policy Research Foundation). However, WMU relies on a narrow donor base, which makes it vulnerable to global events such as the 2008 financial crisis. WMU’s sources of funding according to country of origin is shown below:

WMU depends almost entirely on voluntary contributions to support student fellowships. Donations can be made to support partial or full fellowships as well as Professional Chairs.

As WMU prepares to move to the heart of Malmö in 2014, there are additional opportunities to support the University’s education, research, and capacity building mission by sponsoring specific spaces within the new premises. Naming opportunites are available for spaces such as the main auditorium, library and research labs, to commemorate the generosity of donors. The China Classification Society, Class NK, Korean Register of Shipping, Shindong Digital, Gard AS, BP Shipping, and others have already contributed to the new WMU facilities. Renderings of the new building can be found on the inside front and back cover of this booklet. For more information on how to contribute to WMU, visit
