The Master of Science degree in Aviation Management and Logistics prepares graduates to perform at an advanced level in organizations that move people and/or goods via air transport.
This degree is perfect for working professionals or those about to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree. This program prepares students for management and aviation operations and was designed in response to the significant increase in the transportation of people and goods by air transport. The International Air Transportation forecasts a doubling of air traffic to 7.8 billion trips per year by 2036. Air Cargo is expected to reach 150 million tons shipped per year in the same forecast.
Students in the program examine the business of aviation logistics and its role in the global supply chain. In addition, they learn the techniques necessary to understand and develop an aviation logistics model for producing an accurate and effective forecast for the demand for aviation services.
Students are given practical experience in negotiating, vetting, and managing vendor and labor contracts. They also learn the economic, regulatory, political, geographical, and human-centric challenges facing the industry today, including profit strategies, human-error interventions tactics, and post-9/11 security legislation concerning air cargo operations.
Safety policy, risk management, assurance, and safety promotion are the key focus areas, and students take an in-depth study of the concepts, principles, design, implementation, and administration of aviation safety management systems. As weather events are so disruptive to an aviation organization, students gain an understanding of hazardous weather and the products to predict weather impact on aviation operations.
The College of Aeronautics and Engineering is an exciting and dynamic college dedicated to your success, inclusion of the global aviation community, and scholarship.
Courses for the online MS in Aviation Management and Logistics cover a range of topics essential for professionals who wish to move into management roles in the aviation field. These include legal and regulatory issues, economics and fiscal management, modeling and forecasting for logistics planning, analytics, supply chain management, Six Sigma principles, and more. Students will also complete between 2 and 6 credit hours of aviation management electives and either a thesis or a capstone project to fulfill the program’s culminating requirement.
