MBA in Aviation Management

The  MBA  –  Aviation  Management  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.  

Why enrol on this programme?

The  programme  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 management skills. 

The programme provides students with an opportunity to: 

  • Study the management of aviation organisations at an advanced level 
  • Enhance their business skills 
  • Prepare for research or further study
