The Western Michigan University's Haworth College of Business and the College of Aviation add a new concentration in the aviation industry to its MBA program starting Fall 2014.
Students who choose this specialization have to complete the core courses of the curriculum and three courses in aviation based on case studies : safety management, supply chain, governance in the global environment. The MBA program has also concentrations in Business, Computer Information Systems, Finance, Finance & Commercial Law, Health Care, Law, Management, Marketing and is available in three locations in Michigan : Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and Battle Creek.
"An aviation concentration within an MBA program is very unique," says Dr. Satish Deshpande, associate dean for graduate programs and operations for the Haworth College of Business. "There are very few universities that have both an outstanding aviation program and an AACSB-accredited Master of Business Administration program. We will be positioned to offer students a valuable education that will prepare them for the many diverse roles that exist within the aviation industry. The concentration is ideal for those who seek a career in aviation management or those who already work in the aviation industry and want to advance."
