Content and objectives

Companies in the air transport sector have come to recognise today’s extremely competitive economic and financial climate as a fact of life, calling on them to demonstrate considerable powers of adaptability.

The “Advanced Master” Air Transport Management offers a systematic approach to air transport by examining it from the viewpoints of economy, operational working methods, marketing and financial strategies, productivity and management of human resources in airline companies, and finally the major issues and strategies of air transport in the future.It therefore covers all the subjects which are essential for a career in the air transport field.

Professional prospects and career opportunities

The skills on which air transport companies rely are a reflection of the complexity of the operational environment, and are both numerous and specialised. However, only the major airlines can afford to recruit the many specialists in law, economics, or management whom they really need. For smaller companies, a global understanding of the air transport business is an essential requirement.

Obtaining the “Advanced Master” Air Transport Management is a precious asset for those occupying such positions as: head of market studies, sales representative, management controller, operational research engineer, line manager.
