The Sky’s the Limit

IMG_2188With the first cohort of students successfully graduated, the McGill School of Continuing Studies’ Diploma in Integrated Aviation Management celebrated its official launch with an event at the McGill Faculty Club. The graduate program provides a multidisciplinary approach to aviation management, and aims to offer its learners the world’s most comprehensive program.

Event attendees included an international delegation from ICAO, as well as instructors, guest speakers, current students, and alumni from the first graduating class. The keynote speaker was Stephen P. Creamer, Director of the Air Navigation Bureau at ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization).

“The program exposes students to a series of disciplines, which is really a key benefit to employees wanting to get started on the management path,” says Creamer. “It’s really valuable in developing the next generation of aviation professionals.”

The graduate program features content from multiple disciplines, including aviation law and policy, finance, safety and security, and management. Thanks to Montreal’s status as a global aviation hub, the program’s instructors and guest speakers include representatives from international organizations such as ICAO and IATA (International Air Transport Association).

Included among them was Anthony Delatolla, Senior Director of Regional Airlines at Air Canada; he served as a guest lecturer on the topic of finance. “I wanted to provide a real-life perspective,” says Delatolla. “The students were so engaged, and they asked great questions. I loved it.”
