Official Master's Degree in Aeronautical Management


The master's degree in Aeronautical Management was created to respond to the training needs of those interested in acquiring professional skills in management and focused directly on the aeronautics sector; it also caters to the needs of professionals in this sector interested in the area of management and administration of aeronautics related institutes and companies. The master's degree provides future professionals with the essential skills and abilities needed to carry out several tasks within these companies.

According to the requests that we have received during these last years asking for an on-line version of the master, we dedeveloped a project to reach this audience that until now we could not meet.

Thus, since the academic year 2014/2015 the Master is offered in a double format: semi-face and virtual (on-line). The latter allows that students can follow the master from anywhere in the world, with no additional cost to them, and as easily as if they were physically at the classroom.

Please check the master's degree website for more information on this subject.
