Hello This is rohit from INDIA. I have done my engineering in Aeronautical. I am write now working for a organization since 2 years. I would like to peruse Aerospace MBA. Can you please suggest me is the Aerospace MBA good option for a guy like me from engineering background.

what are the good B schools that offer this programs

Thanks & regards,

Dear Rohit:

The Aviaton or Aerospace MBA is a good option for anyone who wants to work on the business side of aviation.  This degree will give you both more theoretical background in business as well as some additional coursework/ background in aviation (non-aerospace engineering background).  The value added of the degree is that it gives you an additional perspective on the aviation industry, especially from a finance perspective as well as from a management and business perspective (rather than an engineering or design perspective).

There are a number of good schools that offer the MBA in aviation or aerospace including:


Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, FL

University of Tennessee at Knoxville

Dowling College, Oakdale, NY

Daniel Webster College, Nashua, New Hampshire


Griffith University


University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dheradun


Emirates Aviation College

I hope that this list of schools helps you toward your goal.  I wish you the best in your pursuit of your aviation career goals.

I can answer questions about aviation industry employment, airports and airport planning and aviation industry regulation (overall regulation of the industry--who regulates what and why).


I have worked in aviation since the late 1960s, primarily in airports, airport planning and in aviation education. I have done major research in aviation employment and in graduate education in aviation.
