Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs accredited degree program
The Master of Business Administration in Aviation degree program is designed to emphasize the application of modern business concepts, methods, and tools to the challenges of aviation and business. The special intricacies of aviation are woven into a strong, traditional business foundation by combining a specific core of distinct business competencies with a strong aviation foundation.
The degree program is comprised of three sections. The first section is comprised of 9 credit hours focused on high reliability organizations (HRO). High reliability organizations focus on risk, managing risk and resiliency. Concepts from these courses can be applied to all organizations. The second section of the MBAA is the business core and is structured based on input from industry to provide students with the skills necessary to advance their careers into managing functional departments and above. The third section consists of a certificate in the area of the student’s choice and provides the opportunity for students to focus their studies to match their career goals.
The MBAA program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs (ACBSP). This achievement means the program has been peer-reviewed, scrutinized, and meets the stringent requirements set forth by ACBSP.
The program will not require an undergraduate degree in business for admissions. However, as required by ACBSP, prerequisite knowledge in accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management, and business statistics is required. This will be accomplished through a short MBAA Preflight Orientation Course that welcomes students to the degree program through interactive activities and provides the prerequisite knowledge needed to be successful in the program. Students must complete the Preflight Orientation prior to taking their first MBAA course.
