“The aviation industry finds itself in a highly dynamic market environment. The subject matter is complex, making it all the more important to have well-educated experts on board who can offer the requisite breadth of vision for this industry.

The Master’s course in Air Transport Management prepares you for these challenges. You will be taught specialist knowledge by experts with practical experience. By closely interlinking theory and practice you will gain thorough knowledge of the field, equipping you for employment in the aviation industry.”

Ina Voegele Director, HR Recruiting & Development Austrian Airlines

The Master’s course in Air Transport Management offers employees in the aviation industry the option of a higher academic qualification. It is designed to prepare participants for senior positions in aviation management, aeronautical engineering companies or engineering offices. The programme also fosters the concept of entrepreneurship and setting up of new businesses.

The course modules cover every relevant area of aviation, including aviation law, airports, airline and maintenance operations, and air traffic control. These subject areas are complemented by modules on business management, science and technology. Safety and environmental aspects are also thoroughly covered.

“The outstanding features of this Master’s course are its exciting mixture of engineering and business content, the high level of training which qualifies graduates to issue technical certificates, and the competence to lead and set up aeronautical businesses.”

FH-Prof. Dr. Holger Flühr, Head of Institute of Aviation, FH JOANNEUM


The course is organised on a part-time basis and includes modular phases in which attendance is compulsory. Following an introductory week held at the Institute of Aviation, FH JOANNEUM in Graz at the start of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd semesters, the course content is taught over 12 weekends per semester.

Lectures are held on Fridays and Saturdays to allow students to study while working. The classroom-based units are held alternately in Graz and Vienna. During the fourth semester the seminar on “The Future of Mobility” and the lecture on “Maintenance Management” are scheduled individually.
