News Masters in Aviation Leadership Launched in DCU Business School
In response to the findings of the ICAO Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP) Task Force, DCU, Ireland’s University of Enterprise,has committed to developing and delivering a suite of Master’s Degree (Level 9) offerings in the aviation domain. These programmes will be designed to meet the growing needs of the aviation industry and developed in such a way as to allow for flexible student transition, including the development of a series of defined entry and exit points, along the educational pathway, to suit the needs of the busy aviation professional.
This self-paced learning across the suite of programmes will ultimately be complimented by flexibility in terms of location, consumption and pathway selection. Programme development will involve the incorporation of blended learning, where appropriate, in unison with a real life airport experience tailored to the skills level required.
