Expert’s Opinion
“The General Aviation study programme is an excellent choice for aviation enthusiasts. Earnings on the Polish market currently range between 3,000 – 3,500 PLN, but here the market is still in its infancy. If you consider the West and specialists, the earnings range from $4,000 for those entering the market to as much as $7,000 for professionals with experience. Additional education in the field of Economics will make one’s chances of getting a job in companies dealing with audits, HR as well as economic and financial analyses bigger. One of the biggest advantages of the specialisation is the university’s experience in running the Aviation Management programme in the English language. The UITM has been running the study programme for more than 7 years and its graduates find jobs in the aviation sector worldwide.”
