When you think of aviation careers, you think of pilots. But there are a huge number of other jobs that are necessary to keep air travel moving safely. An aviation management degree provides a broad range of skills, both technical and managerial.
The curriculum will prepare you for a career in the management and operation of the airside activities of the aviation industry. You'll get a thorough foundation in both aviation and business (the degree is granted by the College of Business & Public Administration). By graduation, you will have earned a minimum of an FAA Commercial Pilot Certificate with Instrument and Multi- Engine Ratings.
This program is accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
You’ll have opportunities for internships with numerous companies in the aviation industry, such as airlines, fixed base operators, aviation insurance companies and aircraft manufacturers.
The Department of Aviation and Department of Management support several student organizations where you can flex your new aviation and business skills. Check out the Student Aviation Management Association (SAMA), a student led organization with members from all aviation related majors. The group sponsors an annual conference featuring national speakers and also travels to a major aviation city each year.
