I have a question regarding Masters in Aviation Management Course.
I am currently doing my under graduation in Mechanical Engineering (Final Year) and I am inclined alot towards Aviation ( Route Management & Fleet Utilisation ) and hence I think pursuing a Master's in Aviation Management Degree would be good.
I am planning to opt for Embry Riddle but I don't know whether what I am planning is actually required for my dream.
I am from India & have a one month Internship in Air India Engineering Services Limited in Engine Overhaul Department.
My other Options are Arizona State University, Wildau Institute of Technology, Florida institute of Technology & Lynn University
Can Anyone Help me regarding this...Thanks in Advance

What is it that you're intending to pursue job-wise? I agree with stlgph that some work experience prior to going for your master's may be the better course, albeit more difficult if you're coming from India and planning to work in the US. Riddle does have a wider range of aviation degrees for a master's, so it's possible that the Mgmt & Human Factors at ASU isn't related to what you intend to do.
What more about my experience did you want to know about? Classes, campus life, etc.?

I have seen too many folks lose out on opportunities because they opted for very narrow education which worked against them in the eyes of folks reviewing resumes. At the end of the day, there is also no guarantee you will stay in the airline/aerospace industry, so having a broader degree will make you much more employable in other fields as well.
As far as MBA specifically. not sure why the desire to get one now. As others mentioned you can always pursue such in the future once you are established in your career and can make a better determination if it's even worthwhile to pursue at such time.
