International Aviation Policy
This course addresses international management and aviation policy through the examination of major trends and issues challenging the aviation manager. Cross-cultural situations are evaluated from the perspective of interpersonal relationships in a diverse domestic and foreign environment, and in the context of evolving global trends. Strategic planning and negotiation are examined by defining the major tasks involved in organizing for international aviation, such as designing the organization and staffing. Managing workforce diversity is examined from culture-based and comparative perspectives, along with the function of control through the examination of effective control systems for overseas operations that ensure environmental interdependence through social responsibility and ethical behavior.

This course will provide the graduate student with a comprehensive understanding international management in general and issues in the aviation /aerospace industries in particular. The student will be encouraged to take a global perspective and to deal with dynamic global and local issues in the same way as a manager of any nationality. Cross-cultural situations will be evaluated from the perspective of interpersonal relationships in a diverse domestic and foreign environment and in the context of evolving global trends such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the liberalization of Eastern Europe and the genesis of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The international airline industry frequently operates as a subset of the transportation sector. Where conditions are identical, we will cover the general case. Where research shows there to be significant differences this course will attempt to search evidence and justify a different treatment for the aviation/aerospace industries. The student will be exposed to the direction and degree of change in the international airline industry with respect to the industry's structure, performance, and conduct, and decisions made by management in the industry and in Governments. The student will be exposed to the problems faced by businesses as they try to identify and choose the right partners for strategic alliances and cooperative ventures. This will include a brief review of features, such as (a) different legal systems (b) contracts in international business (c) trade disputes and arbitration (d) currency exchange (e) trade financing (f) major terminology in transportation.
