"I am very happy to see this day in which our long-term leadership succession plan is starting to show fruits as members of our senior management team graduate from the renowned, the Open University from which I also graduated some 20 years ago. We at Ethiopian strongly believe that education is the greatest differentiator of our world and we are investing adequately in continuous training of our valuable Human Resources.”

The Aviation Academy has already received the license to be an Aviation University and will soon start accepting students to be enrolled in different programmes.
