About the course

As the world continues to confront COVID-19, and aviation faces unprecedented challenges globally, one must not lose sight of the fact that once this pandemic has subsided, people will take to the skies in great numbers once again. The success of the civil aviation sector’s recovery will therefore strongly rely on the managerial skill level of aviation professionals, and on the innovation and vision, those professionals can bring to defining new and more effective solutions post-pandemic. The Management Certificate in Civil Aviation (MCCA) covers three main topics to help leaders prepare and enhance their leadership skills in civil aviation.

Offered in partnership with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the objective of the MCCA is to enhance the aviation management competencies of qualified personnel in the civil aviation community.


The programme is taught at a level equivalent to that of a graduate business programme and consists of three independent courses: Strategic Management, Human Resources Management, and Business Planning and Decision-Making. These courses will provide current and future leaders in civil aviation with the tools needed to bring their organizations up to speed on critical industry issues.

Each course is composed of nine (9) modules spread over eight (8) weeks of online learning, online self-paced — asynchronous (approximately 15 hours on LMS) and virtual classroom — synchronous (8 half-days sessions online with Zoom).

All courses provide a well-rounded view of the theme under the instruction of a variety of experts and professionals who represent unique perspectives. Successful completion of all three certificates will lead to a Management Certificate in Civil Aviation.
