Since 2008, Orestis Schinas has held the position of Professor for Shipping and Ship Finance at HSBA Hamburg School of Business Administration. In 2010 he became the Head of the newly founded Maritime Business School, which combines all of the shipping-related study programmes at HSBA.

After qualifying with distinction from a degree in naval architecture and marine engineering and finishing an MSc in Shipping Management, Professor Schinas completed a doctorate at the National Technical University in Athens on the topic of multi-criteria decision-making techniques in ship finance.

Professor Schinas has many years of broad experience in the maritime and logistics industry. He has held positions as an advisor and project manager, where he contributed his expertise both to the private sector and to public-sector and international corporations. His activities included large-scale corporate projects such as IPOs, port privatisations and start-up projects as well as numerous research and development projects in the areas of finance, shipping and ports. In particular, he has been involved in research initiatives and projects relating to short-sea shipping as well as the human factor in shipping and ports.
