Who is it for?

These masterclasses are aimed at young devoted professionals working in and with the commodity trading business. They are particularly suited to managers, or those who are about to be appointed as managers, working in the trading, procurement, supply chain, logistics, finance or risk departments. Familiarity with multinational trading operations and risks in physical commodities trading and shipping is required, as well as proficiency in English.

The target group of the program are devoted professionals working in trade and shipping physical commodities, with approximately 3-5 years of work experience. Furthermore candidates should have a BA or MA degree and be able to read, write and talk in English on an advanced proficiency level. 


The programme will allow for our high potentials to enhance and deepen their understanding of all aspects of commodity trading, bring the outside in, and develop capabilities to cope with a rapidly changing business environment. Erasmus University Rotterdam is the right answer to fulfil our mission, helping the world thrive, by investing in thought leadership and build partnerships globally.
