The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) have concluded a Memorandum of Understanding for the launch of an ERAU Masters in Business Administration in Aviation (MBAA) programme.

The MBAA to be conducted by ERAU in association with the Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA), a division of CAAS, is scheduled to commence in the second half of 2010 at the SAA. A forerunner in the field of aviation training, SAA brings to the MBAA programme more than 50 years of expertise and extensive international links in aviation training, contributing to raise the profile and learning value of the MBAA.

 SAA will provide learning courses, lessons and other learning elements drawn from its accumulated experience and expertise in aviation governance and regulation, and the wider Singapore aviation industry. These include case studies on the Singapore aviation experience, visits to aviation organisations and facilities, and talks by leading government and aviation business leaders.

 As an enabler of Singapores aviation industry, CAAS endeavours to build the manpower resource pool for the industry as well as develop Singapore as a centre of excellence for aviation knowledge and training. We are honoured to work in partnership with ERAU on this Masters programme. We are confident that this new programme will further enhance the wide range of quality training programmes available in the SAA and Singapore, tailored to meet the demands of the dynamic aviation industry, said Mr Yap Ong Heng, Director-General, CAAS. As Singapores aviation industry continues to grow, there is a need to groom and empower the next generation of leaders. Aviation is a highly specialised field. In addition to operational and technical training, management training provided through the MBAA will be useful for the overall development of aviation professionals, and preparing them to take on leadership positions.

 Beyond the MBAA, the MoU also establishes the framework for broader cooperation between ERAU and SAA in various areas, including aviation education and training, information exchange and research.
