Asia Compact in Aviation Management Twenty-four Master students chose to join the course Aviation Management Asia Compact which took part from 31 October 2016 to 6 November 2016 at the SGI-HSG in Singapore followed by an excursion to Dubai for two days. Students received a broad overview of aviation and in depth knowledge about how the system of aviation works. They also received an overview of the aviation value chain and understand the challenges of this industry along the chain. Challenges in aviation network management, business models, aviation marketing, pricing and risk management were main topics which were studied in depths during this course. In addition to classroom teaching, students had the chance to meet several managers from Singaporean aviation companies. A first visit was to the Singapore Aviation Academy where a director of the Civil Aviation Authority gave a speech about the implementation of global regulations in Singapore. A second visit was to JetStar Asia where we met the CEO who presented the challenges of the airline in the Asian market. He provided great insights into the business model of JetStar and how they manage different service qualities and service expectations of customers within the same plane. A third visit was to Changi Airport where an operations manager received us and gave us a great insight into how operations are managed at Changi Airport, what the new developments of Changi Airports are, and how they manage to have one of the highest service quality of all airports in the world. A fourth visit was planned to IATA, the International Air Transport Association. The vice president of Asia Pacific received the students and held an interesting presentation about the market developments in air transport around Asia Pacific. Furthermore, three managers of SwissRe Singapore were received at the St.Gallen Institute of Management and gave a speech about how to assess risks in air transport. Overall the students of the course received great insights from theory and applied to practice during this week in Singapore. They were introduced to the way aviation business is done in Singapore where growing markets dominate the management and the development of aviation companies.
