The Aviation Management programs are available only as on-line delivery courses.
There are no on-campus requirements or options.
The Aviation Management programs are part of a suite of Applied Management courses run
co-operatively between the University of Newcastle Graduate School of Business and a number of disciplines within the Faculties of the University of Newcastle. In undertaking the Master of Aviation Management you will be studying two core Aviation courses and can select three or four of the remaining four Aviation courses. You will also study two or three management courses (selected from among the MBA courses) that will also be taken by students in the other discipline streams. You must pass a total of eight courses. The Graduate Certificate in Aviation Management requires you to take the two core Aviation courses and your choice of one further Aviation course and one management course, for a total of four courses.
The strategy of requiring core management courses reflects the primary philosophy, adopted in designing the Aviation Management programs, that most career advancements require a fundamental appreciation of mainstream management issues. The study material in these courses introduces management issues in organizational and strategic settings, which may appear somewhat generic. The intent is to provide a framework for discussion of issues that you can utilize for reflection and consideration of applications in your sector of the Aviation industry. The on-line discussion groups in these management courses will also allow you to interact with other students from diverse backgrounds and draw upon their experiences to broaden your own approach to management issues.
The specific Aviation courses concentrate on the human factors aspects of aviation management, as faced by individuals in aviation workplaces, or as groups in team environments. There is also an emphasis on critique and use of research papers and the development of research skills relevant to management practice. Dialog with other aviation students from a variety of sectors within the industry will allow operational insights and the comparison of management and human factors applications
