Aviation Management under the patronage of Deutsche Lufthansa


In order to meet the expectations of the market, the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow (UITM) has tailored a new specialization course in the field of Aviation Management, which provides an opportunity of acquiring skills in Aviation Management with special focus on airport and airline operations.

UITM is the pioneer of AvM in Poland and only fourth University in Europe offering such a specialised course. Comparing the UITM offer with universities in Western Europe – we offer it at a much lower pirce.

Our lecturers include international experts and practitioners, whose daily work is related to air transportation market. Their enormous experience is reflected in their quality of teaching.

The UITM is the only university in Europe with a license for ARCPort software which is used for  simulations of airports operations. The software is used by the Star Alliance group on a daily basis. Our students have the opportunity to receive a certificate confirming their ability to use the ARCPort software, which is granted by the Airport Research Centre. The software is used by more than 80 international airports and guarantees a lucrative job.

The air transportation market has undergone tremendous development in the last few years. On the basis of the research made by the Civil Aviation Authority, it is anticipated that the demand for Aviation Management specialists will increase considerably in the next 15 years.

Aviation Management is held in English. In the first year students receive profound knowledge in economics; specialization modules begin in semester 3.

Aviation Management specialization courses:

  • Aviation Management and Policy,
  • Aviation Law and Organizations,
  • Airline Network Management,
  • Airport Management,
  • Air Cargo Management,
  • Air Navigation.

Why choose this course

The Aviation Management specialization is more practice-oriented. During the course design and development, we incorporated the best European practices in education and business cooperation.
While learning various course modules our students work on large number of case studies that give them opportunity to utilize their theoretical knowledge acquired during lectures. Learning in such a manner increases their ability of taking critical approach to various issues, thinking creatively and using the best tools and economic indicators to solve a particular problem.
Whats is more, students take part in a decision-game in which they make decisions and solve problems typical for airline managers. This game, after which students receive a cerificate in airport processes and operations simulation, is offered only at one university in Germany and at two universities in the UK.

A rapidly growing aviation market, as well as a shortage of trained staff in aviation industry guarantees that the graduates will be able to find interesting work in airlines and airports at various managerial level positions, in tourist offices and in companies dealing with air transport logistics throughout the world.
