Whether you’re still exploring your academic goals or are ready to dive right into your master’s degree, the university’s first-ever stackable programs and new certificates offered through the Worldwide Campus allow you to design an educational path tailored to your unique interests.

Embry‑Riddle Worldwide is excited to announce a redesigned curriculum for three graduate degree programs within the College of Business. Launched in August of 2021, the enhanced MBA in Aviation, M.S. in Engineering Management and M.S. in Management programs each include a high-reliability organizations (HRO) theme, a degree-specific core and a certificate of your choice.

Organizations are in critical need of employees capable of managing in technical environments involving high-stakes and error-intolerant fields requiring precision and redundancy. With increased flexibility in delivery and curriculum, students can now pursue a program meeting their individual goals while distinguishing themselves from the competition.

"The HRO theme in our program is really unique and distinct. In today's world, every organization can benefit from a better understanding of systemic risk and how it can impact an organization moving forward. Most schools in this country and elsewhere don’t have a unifying theme across their graduate degrees." — Dr. Maneesh Sharma, Dean of the College of Business
