Why choose this course
The Aviation Management specialization is more practice-oriented. During the course design and development, we incorporated the best European practices in education and business cooperation.
While learning various course modules our students work on large number of case studies that give them opportunity to utilize their theoretical knowledge acquired during lectures. Learning in such a manner increases their ability of taking critical approach to various issues, thinking creatively and using the best tools and economic indicators to solve a particular problem.
Whats is more, students take part in a decision-game in which they make decisions and solve problems typical for airline managers. This game, after which students receive a cerificate in airport processes and operations simulation, is offered only at one university in Germany and at two universities in the UK.
In addition to all the above stated aspects, our students also carry out their obligatory internship at various companies of the aviation industry. The list of some companies which we offer internship at is as follows:
