Why this master's program

Within the supply chain, transportation is an often underestimated but very valuable and vulnerable component. Think back to the Covid quarantines that shut down entire airports, causing huge disruptions to imports and exports. In short, there is no favorable economy without a well-managed transportation chain. The number of airplanes and airports is still growing every day, as is the value the aviation industry creates for the global economy. Therefore, the sector is yearning for specialists who know this world inside out and know how to make thoughtful decisions that take their organization to a higher strategic level.

Students in the Master in Air Transport Management will learn to understand all aspects of the aviation value chain. That way, as a brand-new alumnus, you are immediately employable in the niche of your choice. Are you still amazed by aviation every day? With the right management skills, you will create sustainable change in the sector you are so passionate about.

To choose the Master in Air Transport Management is to choose…

  • A central position in the industry

Our campus is just a few hours' drive from Europe's 4 largest airports - convenient for a visit! And our own country need not undercut, with an extensive ecosystem encompassing Brussels Airport and smaller airports shining a light on important niches, such as the smaller-scale transport chains, freight traffic from Liège, low-cost air travel from Charleroi and a thriving private jet business. Add to that the Brussels headquarters of some important governing bodies, like Eurocontrol and Airport Council International, and you will enjoy a huge diversity of experiences.

  • Guidance from sector professionals

Your future lecturers are all experienced professionals with a well-known name in aviation. So a phone call to an interesting guest speaker from the field is quickly arranged. Moreover, the industry likes to rely on our expertise to conduct research and scoop promising workforces from our annual supply of new aviation managers.

  • A purely international approach

“From the classroom, the world opens up.” That is how our alumni describe their experience of the master's program and the AMS campus as a whole. No sector is more characterized by an international outlook than transportation. It is a main focus from the very beginning of the program, so that you are prepared for the multicultural environment you will find yourself in. Our horizon is the whole world.

  • Support from the University of Antwerp's official knowledge center

The Master in Air Transport Management was founded in 1996 by the University of Antwerp and was further optimized there over the years. In 2020, it was transferred as an advanced master’s to the partner school AMS, but the support of the umbrella expertise center C-MAT remained. Today, our students enjoy the know-how of 2 prestigious educational institutions.


Why Antwerp Management School

Let's put it in the words of our students: “An education at AMS transforms you not only professionally, but also as a person.” We are thrilled to hear that again and again, because at AMS, your personal development is as important as your professional development.

You will undergo this evolution in a warm environment, characterized by cooperation and helpfulness, not competition.
