This paper explains the dynamic environment of ports and why it is necessary for port managers to have the skills and abilities to recognise and manage disruptive events and stressors that increasingly affect supply chains. These skills and abilities are dependent in part upon education institutions offering maritime management related curriculums to expand their topics of study on port operations and management. Such expansion would include risk management modules related to logistics sustainability and resilience against disruption. We argue that maritime management institutions are presented with an opportunity if not an obligation to incorporate this important training within higher education courses, short professional short courses and ongoing revalidation/compliance training. Essentially, the paper explores gaps between the strategic and operational requirements of the regionalised port industry and the programs offered by educational institutions
