"This program has broadened my horizons into the various aspects of the aviation industry. New concepts were learnt and old concepts reinforced. The rich mixture of students from various backgrounds ensures that the teaching is not dominated by the lecturer, but enables the students to learn from each other. Also, it provides students with the opportunity of expanding their networks with people within the aviation industry - from all corners of the world. Furthermore, the DAS in Aviation Management is credited towards my Executive MBA at the University of Geneva. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who seeks professional enrichment".
