Few professions could offer more challenging — and more rewarding — tasks than devising a plan to market a $200 million aircraft or creating a strategic plan for a regional airport.

The College of Business offers two undergraduate degree programs:

  • Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with three majors
  • Bachelor of Science in Aviation Business Administration with two majors

We also offer a Master of Business Administration, a Master of Business Administration in Aviation Management, a Master of Science in Aviation Finance and a Ph.D. in Aviation Business Administration.

The fundamentals of marketing, management, and operations apply equally to every industry. Students in these programs learn the skills fundamental to manage and lead aerospace and aviation organizations. Students interested in airline management, for example, analyze route structures and fleet assignments to achieve highly  effective and efficient networks.

Along the way, students gain valuable experience working with aviation-specific software, real world research projects, internships, and numerous college-sponsored clubs and activities. The faculty in the College of Business includes some of the most innovative minds in the field — many of whom are authors of best-selling textbooks and published research articles.
