Globalization has changed the world in many ways, and education has not been able to remain untouched in that process. The day is no more like before that every student has to go to the Campus of an overseas university. The overseas university campus can be in the country where the student resides. Similarly, many more academic institutes have grown in almost all developing and under developed countries in South and South East Asia most. These changes have also affected maritime education in all levels like quality of learning and teaching, quality of students’ background, quality of teachers, quality of resources, etc. Even the quality of the accreditation process may be questionable. According to the Author’s experiences in the industry, academe and in professional organizations, there has been an overall downgrade of maritime education and training especially in developing and underdeveloped countries. It is time that certain check and balance be introduced in this vital education and training of the maritime world before it is too late.
