Global Aviation Management Certificate Program (CAS-GAvM)

The Global Aviation Management CAS-Certificate Program (CAS-GAvM) is a unique executive education at university level. Aviation Managers and newcomers to the aviation industry will focus on accountable management issues in the context of global aviation. Participants gain an overview and use frameworks to increase their efficiency.

This executive education program develops high potential aviation managers into global aviation leaders by turning their aviation practice into capabilities for managing global aviation. It prepares participants to maintain, stream and improve insights about the aviation market, competition, customers, suppliers and regulations.
