The 7-semester International Aviation Management study programme orients itself on the curriculum content of the 6-semester-long programme. In addition, you spend the 7th semester at one of the IUBH partner universities abroad. It is a benefit: You collect international experience during your studies, improve your foreign language skills and acquire additional ECTS credits while gaining in-depth specialized knowledge. You can also decide to enroll in the 7-semester programme during your studies at the IUBH.

Curriculum Overview

The three core elements of the curriculum are:

  • Business: Courses in business studies form the basis of the programme. They include besides others mathematics, statistics, integrated service management and accounting & finance.
  • Industry-specific courses: Here students get to know the aviation industry from scratch and gain in-depth knowledge of specific management subjects such as airport management, aviation policy, airline management, yield-management, business models of airlines, slot management, network management and financing airlines and airports.
  • Skills courses: Computer training and business communication provide vital training in essential and sought-after skills.
  • Study abroad: 1-semester abroad at one of our partner universities is an integral part of this programme. Study abroad is not only a chance to improve foreign language skills but also an international experience at the academic and cultural level.

Depending on the selected country and university you will have the chance to learn about aviation management from a different perspective, and/or to reinforce your management competencies in preparation for a subsequent master’s degree.

Programme lectures and seminars are kept to an average of 30 students. An interactive dialogue between professors and students is encouraged through discussion and exercises.
