International Journal of Decision Sciences, Risk and Management (IJDSRM), Vol. 6, No. 3, 2016

Abstract: The image of the shipping industry plays a vital role in developing the future of maritime transport. In order to attract young people to the shipping industry, it is crucial to understand the image the shipping industry has among young people and the anatomy of the concept in order to effectively promote careers in shipping, and to develop shipping as an attractive labour market for young people. This paper reports on the findings of a large-scale survey of the image of shipping and image-related concepts among upper secondary school pupils in Sweden, Norway, and Greece. We identify, define, and analyse empirically the anatomy of the image concept by means of multivariate statistical analysis.
