BBA Aviation Operations

India’s civil aviation industry is on a high-growth curve. India aims to become the third-largest aviation market by 2020 and the largest by 2030. 

The BBA Aviation Operations program aims to create skilled professionals for the aviation sector and allied fields of travel and tourism. Delivered under the aegis of Center for Aviation Studies, a center of excellence under UPES, the program has a unique advantage of a built-in IATA/UFTAA foundation course within the main curriculum, thus increasing the application relevance of the program with respect to addressing the business requirements of the aviation sector and enabling students with an entrepreneurial bent to acquire necessary skills for starting their own venture.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), India is the fastest-growing aviation market.

The UPES center for Aviation Studies has also been awarded an IATA authorized partner certification.
