The IAT has five key activities: Research, Corporate Training, Implementation Management, Interdisciplinary Networks, and Public Relations & Transfer.

The content pillars of the IAT are Customer Journey, Sustainability, Digitalization, Air Cargo, and Trends & Market Research.

The IAT links the individual research and teaching activities of the five professors, as well as several projects and initiatives in the study programs Aviation Management (B.A.), Tourism Management (B.A.), Aviation and Tourism Management (MBA) and Global Logistics (M.Sc.). Additionally, the IAT is building up a specialized student consultancy. The founding team looks back at more than 100 successful projects with more than 40 industry partners before establishing the IAT.

Get in touch with us if you have any questions regarding the IAT or ideas for collaboration. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
