Both the Master of Business Administration in Aviation Management and the Master of Business Administration in Aviation degrees at Embry-Riddle provide strong foundations for your success in any facet of the global aviation business arena.
Master of Science in Business Administration in Aviation Management
The College of Business on our Daytona Beach Campus hosts the MBA in Aviation Management program, but students have access to the high-tech computing facilities and hands-on labs located throughout the campus. Your research might take you into the Applied Aviation Simulation Lab or the Total Airspace and Airport Modeler (TAAM), for example. You’ll enjoy the full immersion in aviation business practices and avail yourself of the opportunities that can only be offered at an institution focused on your industry.
Master of Business Administration in Aviation
Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide campus offers the Master of Business Administration in Aviation that is ideally suited for working professionals, those who travel frequently, or anyone who seeks a flexible learning environment. Online classes provided by the College of Business Worldwide, allow you to learn at your convenience while still working collaboratively with fellow students and accomplished faculty. You will also have access to the University library’s vast collection of aviation-focused materials without having to leave the convenience of your home or office.
The two degrees are a very few of the business graduate programs that provide traditional business skills, but also have a focus on the aviation and aerospace industries. ERAU's MBA of Aviation and MBA of Aviation Management provide specialized insight into the global business environment — though program principles will help set you up for success in non-aviation industries as well.
Faculty have extensive academic and professional experience from a variety of disciplines, and will work closely with you as part of your preparation for management and leadership roles. Examples of the experience that our professors bring include airline service quality issues, financial performance metrics, airline operations, life cycle analysis, and many other areas.
The curriculum has been developed, and continues to evolve with close attention to the demands of the industry. Most of the courses contain a research component that will provide experience and an insider’s examination of global business practices.
The programs culminate with a capstone course for which you will write a strategic business plan. And with our online educational opportunities and 150-plus Worldwide locations, students have the flexibility to learn at a campus near them — or even in their own home.
