You will enhance your suitability for a management and leadership career in the aviation industry through a systematic understanding of management theories and their nuanced application in an aviation context.

The proximity of London Luton Airport means that you will be able to experience and reflect on operations and how theory is applied in practice, through visits, field-trips and by liaison with industry experts.

Personal and professional development is introduced at level 4 and is anchored in the concept of professional appraisal and human resource management. As you progress through the levels of study, this is further developed through an active exploration of the current employment requirements in the industry and employer expectations of its employees. You will also acquire an ability to articulate how you meet those requirements and expectations.

At level 6, you will tangibly demonstrate your ability to creatively and effectively respond to topical sector challenges through the final dissertation project.
