Nyenrode Business Universiteit and European Pilot Selection & Training (EPST) have developed a program intended specifically for pilots. The objective of this Basic Management Training (BMT) for upcoming or recently graduated pilots is to give them a better understanding of the management within an airline to clarify how airline companies are run.

Nyenrode Business Universiteit and European Pilot Selection & Training (EPST) have developed a program intended specifically for pilots. The objective of this Basic Management Training (BMT) for upcoming or recently graduated pilots is to give them a better understanding of the management within an airline to clarify how airline companies are run.

The program includes a management simulation game whereby the pilots have to make decisions as managers responsible for an airline company and then analyze their choices.

The Basic Management Training has been developed by Nyenrode especially for EPST. Dick Verburg, EPST Managing Director: “The Nyenrode/EPST BMT program is an important addition to pilots’ current unique EPST quality program. We not only provide highly trained pilots, but also ensure that the EPST pilots have a better insight and the associated respect for the management activities within airline companies”.

Professor Dr Willem Burggraaf, responsible for the program within Nyenrode: “This training program offers a hugely interesting experience for Nyenrode as we will be training these literally and figuratively high flying individuals. Pilots are the key assets within airline companies and a good mutual understanding between pilots and their management is highly relevant. EPST has made a sound decision by initiating this management program.”

In addition to the program mentioned above for EPST pilots, Nyenrode and EPST will be developing and setting up a Management Development Program for pilots who are about to be become captains or for captains who are on the point of assuming or are interested in assuming a position within the management of an airline company. This Management Development Program will be open for candidates from all airlines. The program will be given in English. More information about Nyenrode Business Universiteit.
