B.B.A Major in Airport Management
With a mix between aviation and business, the airport management major strikes the right balance.

You’re provided the flexibility to concentrate on particular areas of the industry such as:
- General aviation operations

- Airport administration

You’ll also earn your private pilot certificate with this degree.
