MBA in Aviation Management

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.
