About this course

Whether as an airport consultant for global commissioning projects or as a strategic account manager for a logistics company – nothing works in the aviation industry without expertise and an excellent command of English. As a graduate of our Aviation Management degree programme, you work for traditional airlines such as Lufthansa and Air France-KLM, for low-budget airlines such as Eurowings, as well as for handling companies, aircraft manufacturers and maintenance companies. We provide you with optimum preparation for your international career in seven semesters:

The 7th semester is spent at an international partner university of the IUBH abroad. During your studies, both in Germany and abroad, you can significantly improve your language skills and earn additional ECTS credits. Our professors and lecturers attach great importance to the close integration of theory and practice. Most of them have themselves gained many years of specialist and management experience on an international level – and would like to share it. They do this for example through case studies, projects and field trips to renowned companies.
