Program Description

In today’s globalised world, we have come to rely heavily on civil aviation – not only for international tourism, but also to keep the supply chains of many industry sectors running smoothly. For perishable commodities, such as fresh food or cut flowers, there is no alternative.

This MSc course seeks to prepare students to be successful senior managers and leaders in the highly competitive international air transport industry. To help deliver this, the course has been designed to offer two alternative pathways.

The ‘Business Management’ pathway is for graduates of any discipline, wishing to acquire and develop high-level skills central to the application of a sustainable, analytical and problem-solving approach to Air Transport Management.

This pathway provides an opportunity for graduates in any discipline with an interest in aviation to re-orientate their studies and prepare for management roles in the air transport sector. This pathway can set you on course to achieve exemption from the academic requirement for Membership of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

The ‘Leading Change’ pathway is designed specifically for graduates who have already studied Aviation or Air Transport Management at undergraduate level and who are seeking to extend and deepen their learning and capabilities in the field. This pathway introduces advanced concepts such as alternative views of strategy, change and project management not usually covered in undergraduate aviation management courses.

Students on this pathway are also challenged to develop their leadership capabilities with the goal of being ready to challenge convention and identify potentially disruptive and sustainable solutions to management problems in the sector.

Coventry University has an established reputation within the air transport and aerospace industry and a key advantage is the many opportunities for professional interaction through a programme of industry site visits, visiting guest lecturers and possibilities for participation on client-based group and individual project work.
