The Master of Science in Aviation - Aviation Management is designed for adult working professionals in public, private or military aviation-related professions where advanced knowledge of aviation management is key to success in the program. Persons interested in a wide range of aviation management applications such as airport managers, airport operations officers, corporate investigative positions in government or private organizations would find this degree appropriate.
