Aviation Management Aviation Management This course deals with relevant issues with respect to first understanding how the aviation industry works and second how to manage this industry or in this industry. Especially airlines and airports are used as applied cases. The course "Aviation Management" taught by Dr. Andreas Wittmer offers an opportunity to get to know the particularities of the aviation industry in more detail. Course content The course starts by looking into five environments or main stakeholder groups of aviation. These are: Economy, Society, Environment, Technology and Politics. It takes the participants into depth with respect to the whole value chain of aviation, Airline Network Management and business models, aviation marketing, pricing, customer value, corporate governance and risk management, technologies, regulation and competition, and tourism. Different insights into practice will enhance the understanding. This is done by several company visits in Singapore e.g. Rolls Royce, Singapore Airlines, Changi Airport) and a visit to Emirates Airlines on a stop over from Singapore to Zurich (voluntary). Finishing this course will enable students to have a broad overview of the aviation industry and show the opportunities and challenges of that industry. After this course one knows how this industry works. Read here about last year's course.
