AAPA, Lamar Sign MOU

During the 2021 AAPA Annual Convention in Austin, AAPA and Lamar University’s Center for Port Management renewed their Memorandum of Understanding to reinforce their mutual interest in advanced and continuing education for current and prospective port industry leaders. Led by Erik Stromberg, former AAPA and North Carolina Ports CEO, Lamar’s Center for Port Management offers a unique, 12-course, fully online Master of Science degree in port and marine terminal management. Courses are taught in equal measure by industry experts serving as adjunct faculty and Lamar faculty in the school’s Business College and Industrial and Systems Engineering Department. The Center’s Introduction to Port and Terminal Management course, taught by Stromberg, also serves as the centerpiece of AAPA’s Industry Recognized Port Certificate (IRPC).
