The Aviation Management (AVM) major prepares students for careers as managers in various areas of the aviation industry. The program develops expertise in business management with emphasis on administration of various aviation enterprises. The curriculum includes such areas as business economics, data acquisition and analysis, finance, marketing, and the study of aviation business law and regulation. The AVM program offers three (3) areas of focus or career tracks:

 

  • Airport management
  • Airline management
  • Air traffic control

Students must select the career track of their choice by their Junior or Senior year. Each career track consists of the University Core Curriculum, the modified Davis College of Business Core Curriculum, and a common aviation core. The remaining course requirements are specific to the chosen track and consist of a final sequence of courses leading to a culminating experience course (internship or independent study research project) in the area chosen. It may be possible for a student to select more than one area of focus.
