Meet Our Grads



BI & Data Analytics

“What I enjoy the most is the freedom I have to discuss ideas with my colleagues and actually have an important part in challenging projects.”




“You are busy and exposed in what you do, you feel the responsibility of those tasks assigned to you, but you also enjoy the results of your efforts and deep commitment.”



Flight Operations

“It is exciting and rewarding to be faced with different challenges everyday and to see the value of your input to the operation on a daily basis.




“The most enjoyable aspect of the programme is getting to see exactly what goes into running Europe’s most successful airline and the day to day operations behind it.”
