Aviation training programme
ITAérea Aeronautical Business School, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and the International Training Centre for Authorities and Leaders in Merida (CIFAL Merida) are pleased to announce the first edition of its Master in Sustainable Air Transport Management (MATSM) programme.
ITAérea Aeronautical Business School specialises in delivering high quality training to both professionals of the air transport sector and those who wish to start working in this fascinating and dynamic industry.
It delivers training through its recognised Master in Sustainable Air Transport Management (MATSM) and other postgraduate programmes and shorter courses specific for air transport.
ITAérea strives to meet the demand for the first-class professionals required by the entire air transport sector ranging from the airlines, airports, ground handlers, and aviation authorities to aircraft manufacturers, consulting companies and law firms.
The school is staffed by more than 200 professors who, between them, have vast experience in the industry and a practical approach to sharing their valuable real-life experience to our students.
Air transport has become essential to our global economy. It is a driver of economic growth and contributes to strengthening the ties between countries and the global economy. At the same time, there is a greater need to consider the sector’s contributions to the interlinkages among the three pillars of sustainability – economic, social and environment – in a more comprehensive manner. Exploring how to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into the air transport sector, for example, is a key objective of this master programme.
The MATSM is an executive e-learning programme that aims to equip students with in-depth knowledge of the airport and the aeronautical sectors, allowing them to fill management positions in airports, airlines, as well as in companies associated with airports and aviation in general.
The programme includes five units that cover international air law; airlines; airports; air navigation; and the aeronautical industry. It concludes with the development of a master thesis consisting in the study of a subject related to air transport.
Upon completion of the programme, participants will receive a diploma issued by ITAérea and UNITAR, with graduation ceremony held at the Palace of Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. For further information please contact or visit www.itaerea.es
