Overview

In today’s globalised world, we have come to rely heavily on civil aviation – not only for international tourism, but also to keep the supply chains of many industry sectors running smoothly. For perishable commodities, such as fresh food or cut flowers, there is no alternative.

This MSc course seeks to prepare students to be successful senior managers and leaders in the highly competitive international air transport industry. To help deliver this, the course has been designed to offer two alternative pathways.

The ‘Business Management’ pathway is for graduates of any discipline, wishing to acquire and develop high-level skills central to the application of a sustainable, analytical and problem-solving approach to Air Transport Management. This pathway provides an opportunity for graduates in any discipline with an interest in aviation to re-orientate their studies and prepare for management roles in the air transport sector. This pathway can set you on course to achieve exemption from the academic requirement for Membership of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

The ‘Leading Change’ pathway is designed specifically for graduates who have already studied Aviation or Air Transport Management at undergraduate level and who are seeking to extend and deepen their learning and capabilities in the field. This pathway introduces advanced concepts such as alternative views of strategy, change and project management not usually covered in undergraduate aviation management courses. Students on this pathway are also challenged to develop their leadership capabilities with the goal of being ready to challenge convention and identify potentially disruptive and sustainable solutions to management problems in the sector.

Coventry University has an established reputation within the air transport and aerospace industry and a key advantage is the many opportunities for professional interaction through a programme of industry site visits, visiting guest lecturers and possibilities for participation on client-based group and individual project work.

Work placement option

This master's programme provides you with the additional option to apply for a 'work placement' opportunity during your first semester with us. The 'work placement' is designed to further develop your skills, knowledge and professional experience with the aim of maximising your employability prospects. Please note that the optional placement modules incur an additional tuition fee of £4,000. Find out more about the work placement pathway.

Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that any such opportunities referred to on this webpage may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.

What our students say...

My Master’s Degree from Coventry University provided me with the necessary skills and knowledge to quickly secure a job with one of Europe’s largest airlines. Just short of two years from graduating from Coventry, I am now Director of Passenger Services of two fast growing international airports in Germany. With less industry experience than other candidates, having a Master’s degree in Air Transport Management has undoubtedly provided me with a strategic advantage in this competitive industry.

Johannes Roemer, Air Transport Management MSc, graduated in 2017, now Director of Passenger Services at PortGround GmbH

Course information

The programme aims to foster an analytical understanding of the holistic nature of aviation management, together with a comprehensive knowledge of the functional nature of the business of air transportation, including the objectives, physical and human requirements needed to facilitate high quality and seamless transportation of people, products and services throughout the world.

Referring to current developments in international and national aviation businesses, we can teach you to systematically and creatively evaluate all aspects of air transport management (ATM) to improve business and management practice.

The subject range is vast and diverse, incorporating, for example, aspects of marketing and product development, such as how to create an effective brand and inflight experience for a modern airline or how to influence consumer choices, as well as how human factors impact safety culture. Particular attention is given to the tools and techniques used to establish the best combination of people and technology, including project management, logistics, production management and many more practices promoted by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).

Modules

Overview

Semester One lays foundations for all students, by introducing them to relevant theories and practices which will guide their work as managers and leaders in the industry. Semester Two offers opportunities to apply, consolidate and extend learning.

In Semester One, students on both pathways are introduced to the financial and economic concepts that underpin strategic decision making in the aviation industry. While Business Management pathway students are introduced to the policy, regulatory and marketing theory and practices within the sector, Leading Change pathway students explore advanced strategic concepts and issues which are shaping the industry’s future alongside advanced change or project management.

Semester Two allows students on both pathways to develop their critical appreciation of aviation operations management, including the use of simulation as a problem solving tool and research methods. Business Management pathway students explore the practicalities of safety and security and project management. Leading Change pathway students will apply their learning in a strategic group project and continue to develop advanced practices in change and project management.

Throughout the course, we will seek to engage with complex aviation issues, such as planning for the development of a new business and operating models for airlines and airports and the subsequent scheduling and operational challenges that follow on from this. Current global challenges facing the industry are also discussed.

After successful completion of the taught component, you will be required to undertake an air transport focused research thesis, demonstrating the skills and knowledge you have gained during the course. Live client based projects are encouraged. Past students have considered the future of aircraft cabin design, examined a number of strategy and marketing related issues and looked at human factors in relation to runway incursion among others. This course may be delivered using short-blocks, where the classroom teaching for each taught module is focused over a consecutive five day period.

This course includes the Leading Strategic Change through Creativity and Innovation module developed in partnership with the Chartered Management Institute.

We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
