Aviation Business studies (60 credits)

Virtual and online implementations during the academic year 2022-2023

The studies follow the Haaga-Helia Aviation Business Degree Programme curriculum, in which learning tasks in the field of aviation are implemented with inquiry learning. Key areas of expertise focused on are the basics of financial management, responsible leadership, customer journey, sales and business development and competence development. If you already have gained skills matching the course goals, for example through work experience, you can apply for recognition of prior learning and continue to more advanced courses to speed up your study progress. 

When studying at a university of applied sciences you will need to acquire theoretical knowledge extensively and write a lot. It is a prerequisite that you have excellent study and time management skills, and that you have good oral and written English proficiency, see the prerequisites.The language of the Bachelor's programme is English.

During the academic year 2022-23, the studies will include following studies:

  • Aviation Business Environment
  • Entrepreneurship and Business Operations
  • Managing Aviation Business operations
  • Basics of Financial Management
  • Marketing, Sales and Customer Competences

An individual study plan will be done for each student according to their previous studies or work experience. That also defines the number of courses that the prospective student is required to do. The open university studies will be transferred to the degree student's status after receiving it.

Blended studies

Blended studies include normally two online contact teaching days per month. Presence is required in these online sessions. The exact dates and times for the contact lessons for the academic year 2022-2023 will be announced during spring 2022. In blended learning, apart from the contact lessons, distance learning comprises various extensive learning assignments aimed at improving students’ expertise. Between the online session students are expected to self-study. These learning assignments are completed both individually and in groups, and a variety of e-tools are used. Success in the studies calls for good motivation and a considerable amount of time effort. 

Recognition of prior learning

You can utilise recognition of prior learning for proceeding in your studies. It is possible to replace the degree programme’s courses with previous higher education studies if they are compatible with the curriculum and are accomplished within the past 10 years. 

In this study group we recognise prior learning (work experience) by demonstrations which are especially designed for this group.Demonstrations will efficiently advance your studies.
