Frankfurt am Main, February 12, 2020. The Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences (Frankfurt UAS) and the Board of Airline Representatives in Germany (BARIG) are now partners. As BARIG’s first “Academic Partnership,” this cooperation is particularly beneficial to the part-time MBA Aviation and Tourism Management program at Frankfurt UAS.

"We are very pleased about the partnership with Frankfurt UAS, which is one of the six largest universities for applied sciences in Germany," BARIG Secretary General Michael Hoppe comments. "It is of utmost importance to us that young executives in international aviation receive an excellent education. At the same time, the employees of our member airlines worldwide have the opportunity to advance executive education at the so important aviation hub Frankfurt."

"We welcome one of the world's largest national airline associations as another important partner in the industry," says Prof. Dr. Karl-Rudolf Rupprecht, head of the Aviation and Tourism Management program at Frankfurt UAS. "With its airline members from all over the globe, BARIG is able to offer valuable insights into the international world of aviation, provide important know-how, and explicate processes to our students. We are looking forward to a successful partnership from which all participants will benefit."

The MBA Aviation and Tourism Management program, with approximately 18 international participants, is held in the House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM) in the immediate vicinity of Frankfurt Airport. Further modules are offered at partner universities in Athens, Huddersfield, and Singapore. The graduates are qualified for high-level management positions in the aviation industry.
