Forgive me if I post this in the wrong forum, but I don't know which would be most appropriate for the subject.

(just to give a back ground) I am currently a senior at Purdue University majoring in Aviation Management with a capstone in Airport Management. I also hold a flight instruction and multi engine ratings as well.

My question is: Are there any schools abroad with emphasis on global aviation? Perhaps International Aviaton in masters program ? I have seen ERAU's Masters in Business Aviation Administration, but would like to study a Masters abroad to make contacts, learn languages, and work in either Europe or Asia. I realize this is a vauge question, but I am coming down to one year left of college, and have been looking at a couple of semester study abroad oppurtunities such as Civil Aviation University of China, and a few others in Europe. If anyone has any input on programs for a grad student, or even just a semester study abroad for the spring I would be extremely greatful. Thanks so much

I currently do Air Transport Management at Loughborough University here in the UK and we also have a masters course to dovetail with the BSc.

I would also suggest a look at Cranfield University which has a brilliant reputation in this field and is a post-graduate only institution.

Cranfield is perhaps the best aviation university (it also does other areas) in the world. (As aforementioned, Cranfield is a postgraduate-only university.) It's very highly regarded; indeed, often considered 'the icing on the cake.'

"1st or upper 2nd class UK honours degree (or equivalent) in any relevant discipline. A lower qualification plus a number of years relevant working experience may be accepted as equivalent. For those for whom English is a second language, an IELTS score of 7.0 is required."

http://www.cranfield.ac.uk/students/courses/page1071.jsp

I'd just contact them, tell them your interest, tell them your academic profile, and ask whether you would, in theory, get accepted. That's what I have done in the past.

I read that, and I appreciate your response, but I'm not sure how that transalates to requirements as we have in the United States. I am unfamiliar with term 1st or upper 2nd class "honours" degree. Anyone who can explain this to me I would be most greatly appreciative to

Thanks so much

The academic requirements states 'or equivalent.' So email them, tell them your interest, tell them your US academic profile, and ask whether they'd meet their requirements for admission.
