Haaga-Helia Aviation Business studies provide skills to understand the processes of aviation businesses and organisations. Students learn how to implement business skills in the organisational environment of aviation in practice. They familiarise themselves with the international and local rules and regulations of aviation safety and security that provide a basis for sustainable, profitable operations in all areas of air transportation business.

 

“This educational partnership combines the best from two worlds – Airport College’s latest, up-to-date knowledge and expertise in aviation business, and Haaga-Helia’s expertise and educational know-how in higher education”, says Airport College International CEO Pertti Mero.

 

Global air traffic is expected to double in the next 20 years, creating millions of new jobs. The industry needs to attract young talents providing standards for competency and forward-looking career paths.

This opens up doors for the students and helps them develop their networks already during the studies.
