TAKE OFF TO YOUR FUTURE CAREER. Aviation connects people all over the globe and delivers products wherever they are needed. However, aviation is an industry exposed to severe risks because of its complexity, its global reach, its effects on the climate and its dependency on technical and technological developments. In order to master these challenges, today´s and future aviation leaders and experts need a solid academic and industry-specific education. The Certificate Program “Aviation Management” is one of the very few of its kind in Europe. It consists of special modules on Aviation Management and bridges scientific knowledge with practice. It aims to find answers for the essential and most pressing managerial and economic questions confronting the aviation industry – be it Airlines, Airports, Air Traffic Management, Aircraft Manufacturers or international Aviation Organizations. The Program is intended to make an essential contribution to the students’ professional and leadership development and to help them cope with the daily challenges of their careers. Students enrolled for the Certificate Program can later also enroll for the MBA Program with the Specialization “Aviation Management” or the “Executive MBA” Program. The modules completed can be credited in terms of content and funding.

Aviation Management knowledge and leadership skills are crucial for the next Aviation generation – the blended learning concept, the excellent faculty and the transfer of personal knowledge in class foster the careers of the students immensely.
