Aviation Management

The aerospace industry has witnessed an impressive growth worldwide during the past few years, with major contribution from the civil aviation segment. In the same time, the structure of the entire industry (airlines, manufacturers, lessors, MRO…) has been tremendously modified.

This Specialized Track aims at providing knowledge, tools and techniques allowing participants to leverage the changes in aerospace business as well as to participate in Aviation business. In particular, participants study the fundamentals about the airport industry and air navigation services and how they interlink with the airline industry and aircraft manufacturing. We also highlight air transport industry trends and current airline management practices (liberalization and deregulation, business models, revenue management, the underlying characteristics of profitable airlines or sustainability). We make an overview of safety and security issues in the aerospace industry and how it affects airports and the air transport sector from various cultural perspectives, both national and organizational. Finally, we analyze the Aircraft Operating Lease Industry, demonstrating the benefits of lease transactions for both the lessor and lessee.


This specialized track is designed and coordinated by an Academic supervisor. The latter benefits from an Advisory Board (consisting in Experts and Leaders from the Industry) providing scientific and pedagogical support. This Specialized track has been designed in collaboration with experts from GECAS, International Airlines, Airbus, ATR, ICAO, Airport operators…

This track is made of five main parts (*):
