Graduate Certificate in International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT)

The ISTAT certificate is a partnership certificate and will be issued by ISTAT and not Embry-Riddle.

The ISTAT certificate is designed for students who have completed an undergraduate degree in business, accounting, finance or economics, or related transportation fields of study looking for a rewarding and challenging career in the aircraft financing, leasing and other ISTAT member industries.

Students only pursuing the ISTAT certificate should apply as non-degree seeking graduate students. Students who wish to pursue the certificate as part of their degree program should coordinate any potential credit toward a degree with the appropriate college and program chair.

In addition to Embry-Riddle admission requirements, students must be vetted through ISTAT University and meet the ISTAT admission requirements. 

Non-degree seeking ISTAT applicants with educational experience outside the United States will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Program Chair after completing the ISTAT application process. Enrollment will be limited to the ISTAT courses only (FIND 695A, FIND 695B and FIND 695C). For students who subsequently apply for entry into a degree program, additional documentation may be required and applicants must be admitted in accordance with all applicable international admissions requirements.

Note: Certificate programs are not eligible for Title IV Federal Financial Aid unless taken as part of a degree program.
