The Master of Business Administration in Aviation degree at Embry-Riddle provides strong foundations for success in any facet of the global aviation business arena. It provides traditional business skills, but is unique in its focus on the aviation and aerospace industries. Though the degree provides specialized insight into the global business environment, it sets up graduates for success in non-aviation industries as well. The MBA in Aviation is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
The courses within the program deliver the required MBA core content while investigating trends in the key industry segments in the world of aviation.
The curriculum has been developed, and continues to evolve with close attention paid to the demands of the industry. Most of the courses contain a research component that will provide experience and an insider’s examination of global business practices.
The program culminates with a capstone course for which students will write a strategic business plan.
