Emirates Aviation University has announced today the introduction of a new Executive MBA Programme in Aviation Management in collaboration with Coventry University in the UK. The specialised programme will begin in January 2017 and applications will now be accepted on EAU’s website.
The Executive MBA curriculum was designed for students who plan to pursue a career in aviation management or want to transition from an operational role into a general management role.
Professionals enrolled in the programme will benefit from the dynamic structure as the course is set to be delivered in both Dubai and the UK. As a growing aviation hub and home to one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, Dubai will be the ideal place for Aviation Management MBA students to learn about the industry. While in Dubai to study the first three modules, students will have the opportunity to visit and see first-hand the breadth of operations in aviation-relevant organisations such as Emirates, Dubai International Airport, Al Maktoum International Airport and dnata. In the UK, students will also have the opportunity for organised visits to a range of organisations within the aviation sector. All enrolled students will need to attend modules at both locations to complete the course.
Consisting of six modules and set over the course of 12 months, the Executive MBA programme was specifically developed to fit the lifestyle of busy professionals. Teaching will be delivered in an intensive four day block, followed by individual study and submission of coursework.
Emirates Aviation University remains committed to offering new and industry-relevant programmes. Over the years, EAU has grown from a small college to a full-fledged university offering more than 44 programmes in various fields of study. The growth of EAU underscores the demand for quality higher education in the UAE and the rapid development of the aviation industry in the MENA region. EAU continues to expand and strives to cement its position as the centre of aviation education excellence both nationally and internationally. Some of the programmes offered by EAU include postgraduate and undergraduate programmes in aviation management, logistics and supply chain management, aeronautical engineering, aerospace technology, pilot training and a wide range of aviation and aviation related programmes.
EAU participates annually in several national and international higher education exhibitions where prospective students have the opportunity to learn about the course offerings and speak directly to the faculty. The university is currently present at Najah 2016 Abu Dhabi’s leading higher education exhibition which concludes today. EAU will also take part in China Education Expo in Shanghai between 29 October until 30th October.
