Sabre W/Africa commences MBA Programme in Airline Studies Babcock University

LEADING technology provider to global travel, Sabre Network West Africa has commenced its Masters in Business Administration (MBA) partnership programme with the College of Postgraduate Studies Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, Nigeria, in Airline and Travels Management, two years after signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

In light of this, Babcock has become the first university in Nigeria to offer such a course in Aviation and the programme is expected to run for 18 months with the 2019/2020 session will kick off on September 8, 2019.

Students who enroll for the programme will be trained on Managerial Economics, Organization Behavior, Management Theory, Aviation Safety and Security, Essential of Airline Training and Technology, Fundamental of Airline Operations, amongst others.

President, Sabre Network West Africa, Dr. Gbenga Olowo, said the MBA programme is open to all holders of the first-degree certificate in any discipline across the world.

Olowo also gave an assurance that the programme would be of great benefit to Nigeria’s aviation industry. He further explained that the company chose Babcock because of its integrity and willingness to work with the organization.

“We are expecting as many as many people. In fact, we are thinking of 180 million Nigerians. Luckily, there is no university in Nigeria or on the continent that runs this programme. So, we are pioneering his programme,” Olowo said.

“Nigeria has placed a huge emphasis on pilots and engineers training which constitutes its major cost. Hopefully, the economic health of our airlines will improve with the influx of would-be graduates into the industry,” Olowo added.

Sabre has been desirous in filling the gross manpower shortage especially in commercial aviation where airline wealth is generated. The failures in this sector in Nigeria has been, regrettably, due to an aging work-force and a very poor knowledge of Airline Economics.

Classes for the new session will commence on Sunday September 8, 2019, and intending students can click here to apply for the programme.
