Master of Business Administration Aviation Management Concentration


Awarded 5 Stars in the Programme Strength Category

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.  

The following qualification is also available as an exit award:
