The Aviation Management MBA programme examines the fast moving aviation industry, which has witnessed enormous growth in a relatively short period of time. The fast transit times offered by air transportation, coupled with the ever increasing number of routes, has resulted in a huge demand from both leisure and business passengers. At the same time, there has been an increasing requirement for airfreight services as a result of globalisation, shorter product life cycles and higher customer expectations.
These factors have generated a demand for appropriately skilled personnel which is compounded by the need to develop the associated infrastructure including expanding existing airports and building new ones.
The course not only attracts professionals already engaged in an aviation management role but also professionals from a wide variety of sectors (including finance, manufacturing, retailing, real estate, hospitality, healthcare and security) who are seeking to broaden their aviation skills.
The programme provides students with an opportunity to:
- Study the management of aviation organisations at an advanced level
- Enhance business skills
- Prepare for research or further study.
Completion of the MBA programme provides a means of improving career prospects through promotion with an existing employer, enhancing prospects with alternative employers or providing the skills which may assist you in making a career change.
The course consists of eight modules and a dissertation.
