This program has broadened my horizons into the various
aspects of the aviation industry. 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.

On one hand participation in this program provides us
with theoretical knowledge from the IATA instructors and university
professors. On the other hand, my classmates originate from different
countries and continents with different professional backgrounds, and
therefore we are additionally learning from each other´s experiences
and real business situations in an international setting. This program
definitely requires your full engagement and many efforts but it is a
worthwhile investment in your future.
