Management Certificate
in Civil Aviation

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.
