“…Studying Aviation Finance provided me with a huge amount of knowledge and skills to further my career in aviation. The course was very interesting, enjoyable and challenging. Many interesting subjects provided me with knowledge to work in various departments of the airline industry. The lecturers were supportive, friendly and motivating. Rathmines fosters a culture that promotes growth and development in a friendly environment where you feel comfortable, confident and supported throughout the study year.
