Jouy-en-Josas, 18th June 2007 - HEC Executive Education is launching a new English-language program in partnership with the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University, Montreal: the Executive MBA Major in Aviation. This program is targeted towards managers of the European aeronautics industry who wish to gain new responsibilities but also managers from all industries who have great potential in the global aviation market.
The aviation modules which will be held in Europe by HEC will profit from the knowledge of European specialists. The major will include a study trip to Montreal, headquarters of the International Air Traffic Association (IATA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), with courses taken with Aviation MBA participants at Concordia. This will enable the participants of the HEC Executive MBA Major in Aviation to benefit from North American expertise. Upon completion of the program participants will receive the Executive MBA Major in Aviation from HEC and the Graduate Diploma in Aviation Management from the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University, Montreal.
HEC has for years been a provider of specialized education for European leaders of the aviation industry. The Executive MBA emphasizes strategic management. The participants choosing the Aviation major will study the complex mechanisms of deregulation and globalisation in this sector.
This new cooperation between Europe and North America in the field of Aviation management is the first of its kind. It will foster exchanges between participants, professors and industry specialists to better respond to the needs of aviation leaders—aircraft manufacturers, airlines, and airports—and to the evolving needs of global demand.
