The Aviation Management program at NSCC is designed to provide the student with the general management skills needed for entry-level positions as supervisors, managers or sales trainees, assistant managers, administrators, or administrative assistants in the field of aviation. Coursework in aviation sciences, accounting, economics, management, marketing, and other related business areas exposes students to the basic principles and applications of aviation management within the aviation industry.
