DCU MSc in Management (Aviation Leadership): Special entry for CPL / ATCOs

The MSc in Management (Aviation Leadership) is a specialist postgraduate programme designed to provide participants with aviation knowledge in all key aviation sectors combined with an education in strategic management. The teaching faculty possess academic expertise and a wealth of industry experience, with many having backgrounds across all branches of the industry – airlines, airports, ATC and regulatory offices.

As a CPL holder, Military pilot or an Air Traffic Controller, your existing qualifications can be used for direct entry to the course, even if you don’t have an academic degree.  The school is also giving a 10% discount to all DCU alumni to do the Masters (full-time and Part-time). 

The programme’s Guest Lecture series exposes students to leading aviation managers’ views of the important current issues in aviation and the challenges facing senior aviation managers.  The content of the course is guided by the DCU Aviation Industry Advisory Board and reflects current & future issues and trends in the global aviation industry.
