Hi i need some help from you aviation experts. Currently i am in my second year of studying Air Transport Studies BSc HONS at City University in London. I am hoping to get into Management but if there are managers out there do you think it is better for me to apply for a job and then do my masters management or should I finish all studying and then look for a job? I need to decide now as I want to do my masters abroad so I have to make the neccesary plans. Thanks in advance for any replies...

Hi Nikeshashar,

I advice you to go for a job for a while. Are you looking for Carnfield to complete your studies? I finished a general bachelor in economics and was looking for aviation/logistic/supply chain managment. But then I decided to stop my studies because after two years break you have a greater choice between MS and MBA or even courses organised by indipendent istitutions such as EADS. So... my advice is to stop IF YOU FIND A GOOD POSITION. And with the word good I do not mean money but experience! In aviation experience is over everything, studies are secondary.

Good luck!

Regards,
HBDAN



Next flight: hopefully soon...

I agree. Get a job after you complete your BS. That gives you some real world experience, and away from the "theroies" given in college.

Good Luck

the university for studying is ok...not the greatest...if you have been accepted at loughborough then go there. this course has just been restarted and there are a few modules that are not really relavent. they are trying to teach you theories of the aviation field as a whole. depends on what you really want to do. we have a good course for budding pilots with air transport operations which involves one year at oxford aviation school so look into that aswell if its in ure field of choice...but for entertainment..to sum it up..the university SUCKS!

I looked at both City and Loughborough (got accepted by both) but put Loughborough down as my first choice. London seemed OK, but I was put off by living fees and also the accommodation - we looked around one of the tower blocks, and it was very grotty, and just didn't seem as nice. Loughborough also seemed a little more interested in the industry, though that was just my impression.

does anyone know what the 'aviation management' course at london met is like? im a little weary of the reputation of the uni, and the bad press it appears to get with its standings (or none rather) in league tables.
How is the uni for entertainment, being in london helps i would imagine.
