Full course description

Shifting from Management Effectiveness to Leadership Excellence

The Business Aviation Leadership Program, designed in collaboration with business aviation experts from VanAllen, is a four-day, fast-paced, highly-interactive program designed to help you earn a Certificate in Business Aviation Leadership from a nationally-ranked business school.


The Georgia State University J. Mack Robinson College of Business and VanAllen, a highly-respected business aviation consulting company, have combined forces to design a truly unique Business Aviation Leadership Certificate Program. World-class leadership professors and world-tested business aviation experts will help you transition from management effectiveness to leadership excellence.

The Business Aviation Leadership Program gives a strategic perspective supported by a blend of best practices in leadership development and best practices in business aviation, using multimedia presentations, industry case studies, and small-group exercises.


Why choose us?

Aviation and excellence

The program focuses on personal leadership effectiveness, developing emotional intelligence, building productive teams, and creating strong links between aviation operations, business strategy and value creation. Participants consistently tell us they leave the workshop more confident and optimistic about their leadership capacity,  and better equipped to engage in strategy-oriented discussions.

Certified Aviation Manager (CAM)

In accordance with the approval of the Certified Aviation Manager Governing Board, attendees of this program are entitled to four points toward completing the application to take the CAM Exam. Additionally, attendees already designated as a CAM will earn four points toward recertification.

Dynamic approach

The business leadership professors and the business aviation practitioners will deliver the program content using simulation activities, multimedia presentations, industry case studies and small-group exercises.


All participants should work in the aviation industry, but not necessarily have worked at the executive level.
