New concepts were learned and old concepts reinforced. The rich mixture of students from various backgrounds ensures that the teaching is not dominated by only the lecturer, but enables the students to learn from one and other. Also, it provides students with the opportunity of expanding their networks with people within the aviation industry - from all corners of the world. Furthermore, the Diploma is credited towards my Executive MBA at the University of Geneva. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who seeks personal enrichment.
