More about this course Designed in conjunction with senior aviation managers, this course recognises the demand in today’s international aviation community for graduates with sound business skills and a good understanding of the entire aviation system. Aviation is an exciting industrial sector that ranges from the technological excellence of Boeing and Airbus to the management of global airlines and airports.
