The proposed research is designed to expand the research of ACRP 06-06 – Cultivating Talent in the Airport Environment, and ACRP 06-07 – Enhancing Academic Programs to Prepare Future Airport Industry Professionals both of which are still in progress. Many collegiate aviation programs examined in ACRP 06-07 offered master's degrees in business administration, public administration, or aeronautical science that included airport related coursework and in some cases a concentration option. The proposed research will follow the work plan from the previous research by examining the curricula, syllabi and other attributes of each graduate degree program. A guidebook will be prepared to include recommendations for airport-related coursework, concentration curriculum and other resources for academic institutions.
