*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 65-66 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Upon successful completion of this degree option, students will be able to:
- demonstrate leadership, teamwork, managerial, and organizational skills within the aviation industry;
- apply quantitative methods of modern business management to improve organizational performance in the aviation industry;
- analyze and assess airline and airport operations, government regulations, and safety and environmental concerns to plan and implement appropriate strategic and tactical business methodologies;
- measure the impact of global competition and security issues on the U.S. aviation industry, identify progressive actions to overcome these issues, and utilize technology to enhance efficiency and competitiveness;
- respond to changing paradigms and unique challenges associated with a culturally diverse workforce; and
- speak and write effectively for professional business communication in the airline industry.
Aviation management is a rapidly expanding field with excellent employment prospects. These professionals are largely responsible for the development, planning, operation, and marketing functions of the aviation industry.
The Flight Management Degree prepares students for employment in various business-related aviation career fields, including airport or airline management, airline dispatcher, cargo operations and fixed base operator (FBO) management. Careers are also available with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), Department of Transportation (DOT) and other government agencies.
Flight Management focuses on business administration, accounting, marketing, airport and airline operations.
