The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) has signed an agreement with Toulouse Business School, France, to set up India's first Executive General Management Programme in Aerospace and Aviation Management as a first step towards collaborating in teaching and research.
Airbus India, a leading aircraft manufacturer, is sponsoring the programme to help develop and nurture local talent in the field of aerospace.
A two-year yet part-time degree course, this Aviation Management programme will enroll up to 75 students each year.
The Director In-charge of IIM Bangalore, Professor Devanath Tirupati said in the press release, "We are delighted we'll be offering the first Executive General Management Programme in Aerospace and Aviation Management in India and to be supported by world leaders Airbus and the Toulouse Business School. The students will also have the option of earning an Aerospace MBA degree from Toulouse Business School. We strongly feel that this will give the right skills and the best possible training for our next generation of aviation sector business leaders."
The programme has been established with a view to develop the next generation of Indian aviation professionals because India is one of the fastest developing countries in the aviation market and is also one of the richest talent pools for the next generation of business leaders, as stated by the CEO of Airbus India, Dr. Dwarkanath Srinivasan. He further added that with more than 500 million passengers flying each year in India, there is an increasing need for expertise in aviation business.
