IATA Foundations in Leadership Program in collaboration with Harvard Business Publishing aviation training course

Develop a leadership mindset and gain a management skill set with this 16-week blended-learning program. This program is offered in collaboration with Harvard Business Publishing (HBP) to help you as a new manager make a successful transition to your managerial ranks while honing your leadership potential. Virtual leadership development is not synonymous with on-your-own, self-paced training. The program is structured to accommodate busy schedules and combines self-study activities that can be done in your own time, at your own pace. Collaborative activities such as live sessions allow you to participate in facilitated discussions with a moderator and your peers.


The self-study learning activities include Harvard ManageMentor© access for the duration of the program, plus 90 days after the program; Harvard Business Review articles; videos; and simulations. The program also includes 8 virtual sessions of 90 minutes each, facilitated by an HBP moderator, providing you with instruction and engaging you in discussions. The moderator also stays connected through the online discussion forum. The Learn–Apply–Reflect approach uses predefined on-the-job activities to align the content for the immediate application of learning, and each module includes activities requiring you to take action on what you are learning.
