The airline industry today faces many challenges.
Online MBA programs in aviation and aviation management seek to assess and engage with the challenges of the day.
Typically, programs seek to equip students with the skills and mindset necessary to operate within and lead organisations of the future.
This type of program is ideal for those who already work within the aviation industry - such as pilots or engineers but also for those wishing to enter into aviation management.
Programs typically cover core MBA modules which might include finance, human resource management, marketing and strategic management within an aviation framework.
Elective modules specialising in aviation management typically cover global aviation issues, aviation strategy, airport operations and airline operations.
Programs frequently have accreditation tie-ins with industry bodies and related chartered institutes but this varies from program to program and by region and country. Prospective students are encouraged to explore this in more detail.
