I was fortunate enough to enroll and complete the IATA Aviation Management Certificate, this was a fantastic opportunity to strongly enriched my skills, knowledge and career in the aviation industry.

Many of the modules offered are unique, because there is no equivalent, the unique flexibility to learn at my own pace while acquiring internationally-recognized credentials was invaluable. This program was a great opportunity to better address challenging issue in a meaningful way and better understand how to apply these competencies and skills to my working environment.

Aviation I have worked in it all my life and I just think it is one of the most exiting businesses anyone could work in. Every Aircraft that takes off opens up new possibilities for business for trade, it fulfill people’s dreams of exploration and discovery, bringing peoples together, and I really believe that by doing all this things and by doing so we make the world a better place.

And we do it safely for billions peoples, millions and millions of tons of cargo every year. And aviation has changed our planet into a community. In term of potential, you know we’ve been going one hundred year but in fact we’ve really only just started. As I think you can tell I am passionate about this industry, I am passionate about the good it does and the importance that it has to the world.

I am very thankful to IATA and Stanford Center for Professional Development for giving such a great opportunity to master the art and science of leadership and learning different approaches to key management, skills and competency that are particularly critical to the face of today's and the year’s ahead industry challenges.

"The Airline Leading Practices and Cost Reduction Strategies course brought together key management from many African countries, and we had the opportunity to review strategies for growing the business and achieving the goal of sustainable profitability. Through discussions, we were able to look into different opportunities and challenges that our partners are facing as African airlines. It was a great opportunity to see the limitations that we are facing and to try to establish an interrelationship between each other for a better understanding of the airline industry in Africa and in the World."

Andrea Wächtershäuser

The course was highly valuable for me to increase my knowledge in the area of revenue management and provided me with an opportunity to act more proficiency when talking to Airlines. In addition the setup of the e-Learning course allows to fit the course . It was excellent to start the course with the basic knowledge in the area of revenue management and airline processes and then dive into the details and various examples based on the Airline’s business model. The knowledge check at the end of the chapter helped in addition to stabilize the knowledge and be prepared for the next chapter. During a discussion with a revenue manager from an Airline after the course I was actually able to ‘talk their language’ and get into the topic even quicker. My motivation for the course was triggered from a personal interest in development and skill increase. The idea was to get more insights in the aviation world and understand how Airlines are managing and increasing their revenues through efficient processes within revenue management.

Jörg C. Roggenbauer

Although I educated myself by reading specialist literature I had to learn that I need certificates as proof of my knowledge in order to get access to real interesting positions within the company. As a consequence I thoroughly investigated various organizations and came to the conclusion that IATA's courses would suit me best. If you are new in the business you will receive very valuable knowledge. Otherwise each course will allow you to get a even more thorough picture.

To enhance my current tourism studies allowing me to change career paths in anticipation of making me more of a competitive prospect in today’s job market. One area of study I will benefit the most from my course will be airfare structures. Because of its complex nature, even understanding the theory of something as technical as advanced airfare structures will be invaluable in the long run, having the advantage by providing me the knowledge to answer questions where others can’t. To study with IATA means the flexibility to do so with well-rounded courses that are relevant and up to date, all back by the industries it represents. IATA will provide you with the keys to your future aspirations, but make no mistake it will be your ambition and motivation that will ultimately unlock your successes.

The Consultant course has been thoroughly informative as well as gratifying. It has taken me to new heights and also given the chance to learn and to explore. The opportunity to learn about a field of studies foreign to me. I also wanted to expand my current awareness in the travel sector.

Muriel Nyfeler

I was motivated to do the IATA Foundation & EBT Course because I wanted to enter the travel industry and I taught this was a good way to do so. It seemed like the perfect occasion to learn everything I needed to know to begin in this field. I learned a lot from this course. In fact when I began, I knew almost nothing about the travel industry. I learned about  many important things like the work you have to do as a travel agent, the geography, tariffs, and how the airline industry works. It was very diversified and easy to understand even for someone who never worked in this field. It was interesting and most of it all, it gave me the motivation to work hard and succeed.
