As an aviation management student myself, it was my childhood dream to work in the aviation industry someday. Upon my graduation in AISAT’s Senior High School program, which helped pave the way in preparation for my degree, I immediately got hooked with the subjects under the aviation management program. Also, as an outgoing person who dreams of traveling to see the world, it is with utmost certainty that indeed, this program would take me wherever I dream to be. The vast areas for learning provided by this course  are the reasons that motivate me to strive to become an even better version of myself. Despite the shift to online classes, I am forever grateful to our professors for meeting us in our live lectures and constantly inculcating in us their experiences from the abundant industries they come from. Our class works are even diversified beyond traditional quizzes and assignments as we are faced with research papers and situational case and industry analyses that exercise our abilities in decision making and critical thinking as one of the future managers in the aviation industry.
