On November 22, 2019 TBS will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its aerospace activities, which have been initiated with the launch of its flagship program: AerospaceMBA.
First deployed on a full-time basis and then a few years later on a part-time basis, it has been enriched and expanded over time thanks to the contributions of Alumni, professors and experts and historical partners who were from the outset alongside the program: Airbus, ATR, IAS…. It is useless to count the millions of kilometers covered since its inception by all the Delegates (and professors & TBS team) from 80 countries, contributing to the influence of TBS throughout the world, whether in airlines, airports, equipment manufacturers, engine manufacturers, MROs, aircraft manufacturers (civil aviation, business jet, commercial aviation, helicopters, defence, drones, etc.), tier 1 and tier 2 subcontractors, but also in the rich & booming space ecosystem (launchers, satellites, integrators, applications, NewSpace, etc.).
With the deployment of the program also in India since 2015 in partnership with the world-renowned Indian Institute Management Bangalore, the “enhanced” NewGen launched in October 2018 (and its brand new Specialized tracks), Aerospace MBA has extended its reach and its roots in the evolving aerospace landscape.
Since 1999, TBS has also been able to open other programs related to this sector such as the Master in Aerospace Management or, in collaboration with ENAC, the Bachelor in Aviation Management and the Specialized Master in Air Transportation.
In addition to its academic activities, TBS has accompanied many leading companies in the sector in specific executive training such as Latécoère, Liebherr Aerospace, Airbus, ATR, AirFrance, AirChina Technics, Thales....
Thousands of internships and TBS graduates work in this sector, which remains France's leading export sector, one of the most innovative and the only one in which France has complete control over all the business components. Add to this the growing importance of space activities and TBS's economic footprint in aerospace management is unique among all management & business schools in Europe. TBS also has the richest library in aerospace management in France!
All this could have been possible only with the constant support of the partners and the governance of the school, and the Alumni.
At the end of the day though, the central driving force behind the rocket, enabling everyone to boost our careers remains the faculty's research professors! In addition to the publication of top ranked articles and books, thesis supervision and research work, the research excellence has enabled the Sirius Chair to be created alongside Université Capitole 1, CNES-French Space Agency, Thales Alenia Space and Airbus Defense & Space.
Hence, these 20 years represent of course the celebration of AerospaceMBA and more broadly of TBS's Aerospace activities, which are part of a still recent history. But this #Happy20 is also a moment of conviviality within our aerospace community, and the determined affirmation of a strategic ambition for TBS in aerospace management and leadership.
This is evidenced by the launch of the Aerospace & Mobility Cluster in 2019, which aims to propel TBS and its aerospace activities even higher!
What is the program of #Happy20?
This remains a surprise… However we can tell you, we will be revealing information about this event and how to register (by invitation and limited number of places) in the coming weeks.
