The Certificate of Advanced Studies in Aviation Accounta­bility, Safety and Compliance Management (CAS-ASCM) is a unique executive education at university level. For the last nearly 20 years, CFAC-HSG has been educating aviation managers. The CAS-ASCM develops high potential aviation managers into global aviation leaders by turning their aviation practice into capabilities for managing global aviation. lt prepares participants to maintain, stream and improve insights about the aviation market, competition, customers, suppliers and regulations. Capacities are built with respect to challenges in accountable management, internal auditing, safety and security management and cross-cultural management. 

The direct transfer into practice is achieved by applying specific business cases, which are often introduced by the participants. Equipped with an overview, frameworks and tools, the participants will be able to lead, control and increase the efficiency of processes in global aviation management. They will receive structures and tools to auditing their companies and will be able to reduce the risk by using the provided risk management framework. Schemes for quality and safety management help them to comply with regulations. Finishing this program will enable the participants to influence and steer the company by applying their knowledge of the global system of aviation.
