Master of
Business Administration in Aviation

One of the university’s first-ever certificate-based graduate programs, the Master of Business Administration in Aviation (MBAA) degree at Embry-Riddle provides strong foundations for success in any facet of the global aviation business arena and allows students to design an educational path tailored to their unique interests. It provides the traditional business skills of an MBA that are applicable to all industries but is unique in its focus on the aviation and aerospace landscapes. 

Crafted with industry partners, the MBAA is uniquely structured to provide a high-reliability organizations (HRO) foundation, a degree-specific core and a certificate of the student's choice. With HRO concepts such as risk management and risk mitigation woven throughout the program, students graduate prepared to succeed in the high-risk and complex environments of today’s organizations. In addition to their core classes, students can also dig deeper and explore the topics that excite them most by choosing from a collection of resume-boosting certificates. 

Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), 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.
