To meet the needs of this rapidly expanding sector, premier B-School IIM Ahmedabad has launched a programme in collaboration with Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC) France that aims to equip new-age management professionals with the skills required to lead the sector through its next stage of development.
• The 6-month programme includes joint certification, dual alumni status, and 10-day campus immersions at IIMA and ENAC in France.
• Global content, faculty, and cohort to help professionals reach new heights and prepare for leadership roles.
The Indian aviation and aeronautics sector has recovered from a difficult pandemic period and is once again flying high. The number of travellers is expected to double to 400 million in the coming years, with a market size of USD 4.33 billion by 2025.
This 6-month programme is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the principles, practises, and policies relevant to the aviation and aeronautics industries, including technical aspects as well as leadership and business management dimensions.
Participants from a wide range of aviation, aeronautics and allied industry sectors will learn airline and airport operations & management, multi-modal logistics, infrastructure development, public-private partnerships; mergers & acquisitions in aviation, ESG, sustainability, IT strategy & applications, and various other topics from distinguished IIMA faculty.
Further, this limited seat programme includes industry-leading global exposure at the state-of-the-art campus at ENAC, Toulouse, France. Participants will learn about the emerging technical and operational aspects covering aviation and air transportation operations & management, big data applications and optimisation, maintenance and safety issues, drones and UTM, and air traffic management.
Prof. Debjit Roy, IIM Ahmedabad, commented on the programme, saying, “The Indian aviation and aeronautics sector is expanding, as is the demand for experts with techno-managerial skillsets. We are pleased to offer this programme to those who can steer the industry toward a more disruptive future.”
“While the sector’s future may present many challenges, participants will have the chance to envision and reinvent how the sector should operate in line with the government’s objective of making India a worldwide aviation hub.”
Professor Sandip Chakrabarti, IIM Ahmedabad, added that, “The aviation and aeronautics sector in India has outstanding growth prospects. Our unique custom-designed programme is backed by strong academic research and deep insights from the industry.”
“Our programme faculty have extensive global experience in business management as well as aviation technologies. We will focus on the changing dynamics of the sector and introduce to participants the latest global innovations in the field.”
