The Bachelor of Aviation Management / Bachelor of Business is designed for those seeking to play a key role in bringing changes to the aviation industry. Students gain insight into how airlines and airports operate to prepare them for management roles in the aviation industry in Australia or overseas. The course is also designed to teach students how to become innovative by integrating creative thinking and behaviours that equip them to lead and succeed.
