Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) and Toulouse Business School (TBS) together are offering a certificate course in General Management Programme for Aerospace and Aviation Executives (GMAE).
The third edition of the partnership programme will be launched, on May 8, 2017 at the IIMB campus. A press release said that it is a unique programme that offers its graduates a GMAE certificate at the end of the first year and an MBA from the Toulouse Business School (TBS) at the end of the second.
The course allies IIMB's academic expertise in management and TBS's aerospace competences. This combination of managerial and technical expertise also represents a step forward in the understanding of European and Indian markets, the release said.
The programme attracts a large number of applications, from various sections of the aviation industry. A selection committee carries out the examination of each application.
Selection to the programme is based on the candidate's profile and its fit with the programme's mission and objectives. The committee keeps in mind the requirement to ensure an adequate batch diversity in terms of background as well as experience, the release added.
The average work experience of the delegates is 15 years. They are from well-known national or international companies or institutions, such as the Indian Air Force, Air India, Indigo Airlines, Prime Aerospace Middle East, Airbus Group, Tata, Honeywell Technology Solutions, SpiceJet, and UTC Aerospace Systems, among others.
The GMAE participants attend international seminars and conferences, as well as study academic courses in classroom-based sessions with peer-to-peer learning. As a part of the curriculum, during Year 1, the GMAE participants have study trips to Toulouse (France) and Seattle (USA).
During their study trip to Toulouse, they visit the final assembly line of the civil aviation aircraft manufacturer Airbus, the premises of ATR and meet the Aerospace Valley's executives, a competitiveness cluster in the field of aeronautics, space and embedded systems.
A total of 45 participants from the GMAE Batch 1 are pursuing Year 2, Toulouse Business School's Aerospace MBA, taught both at IIMB and at TBS, and will graduate in April 2017. The convocation ceremony will be held at the TBS France campus. A total of 48 participants from the GMAE Batch 2 are pursuing Year 1 of the programme and will graduate to Year 2 in May 2017.
