  • MoU signature between Arabian Gulf University and AirBusiness Academy (Airbus Group) to launch an Aviation Management MBA

    Published on 16/11/2016

    On 29th April 2016 Dr Khalid A.N. Al Ohaly, President of the Arabian Gulf University (AGU) and French Arabian Business School based in Bahrain and Didier Penabayre, Managing Director of AirBusiness Academy, an Airbus Group company, signed an MoU to develop and deploy a new MBA track specialised in Aviation Management to be offered by the French Arabian Business School in Bahrain.

    The Arabian Gulf University is a public higher education Institution owned, financed, and managed by GCC ministers of Higher Education. The French Arabian Business School is part of AGU graduate studies and was established in cooperation with the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The MoU signing ceremony took place at AirBusiness Academy and Airbus SAS in Toulouse, France.

    The MoU represents the integration of AirBusiness Academy into the existing partnership between the Arabian Gulf University/ French Arabian Business School and ESSEC Business School who have already jointly developed and delivered successful MBA programmes in the past years.

    Now the skies have cleared for the new MBA track supporting individual career development as well as the specific needs of the GCC aviation sector in order to meet increasing challenges and global competition in the region.  Record growth of air travel in the region coupled with the steady expansion of far-reaching global airline networks has created new challenges for Gulf Council Countries airlines, airports and aviation authorities

    The MBA will represent a unique combination of expertise and will permit MBA students to evolve in a truly international environment.

    The new MBA track will examine essentials, such as Airline Strategy and Business Planning, Aviation Organisations and HR Management, Aviation and Aircraft Finance, Flight Operations and Crew Management as well as Safety Management Systems in Aviation.

    It provides students the capabilities to address today's aviation challenges. It will be designed to emphasise the application of modern management concepts, methods, and tools within an aviation context.
