Elite Airline School At MIT

Fri Feb 21, 2003 3:59 pm

Check out this program, it's an airline management program at MIT. Wow, it looks pretty nice, but I bet it's pretty tough to get in.

If you complete this program I'm positive every airline will want to hire you.

Would it be better or equivalent to Cranfield University? Do they offer PhDs in Aeronautics?

I also heard that University of British Columbia has a top aviation management department.

The fastest way to become a millionaire in the airline business is to start as a billionaire.

No, I think a degree from MIT will open more doors than that.

But it seems that this program focuses on operations and stuff.

This is pretty legit. I know of a couple of people in the airline industry who studied at Harvard (you can take MIT courses) and participated to some extent in the program.

How does it compare to the IATA MBA at Concordia in Montreal?

I wouldn't be too concerned because a website has not been updated. It's a small program. Whenever I read about "aviation MBA or aviation masters" programs, I am highly skeptical and consider them a waste of money. It's better to go to prestigious regular MBA program and work your way into the industry.

But MIT is a heavy-hitter. I think all of their programs are world-class. It is not the sort of school where you could get by with half-baked, retarded Power Point slides and get an 'A.'
