Singapore Aviation Academy
Earn your Master of Business Administration in Aviation or your Master of Aeronautical Science degree from Embry-Riddle Asia in partnership with the Singapore Aviation Academy (SAA), the internationally recognized training arm of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore. Through its four specialized schools — the School of Aviation Management, the School of Aviation Safety and Security, the School of Air Traffic Services and the School of Airport Emergency Services — SAA has trained over 52,000 participants from 190 countries since 1958. It offers a wide range of aviation training programs for both operational and top-level aviation management personnel, with a world-class airport at its doorstep for on-site training.
Embry-Riddle Asia’s partnership with the ERC Institute (ERCI) evolved from the May 2014 merger between ERCI and the International Executive Education Center (IEEC), our initial Private Educational Institute (PEI) in Singapore. The partnership with ERCI enables us to offer full-time and part-time undergraduate degrees in Aeronautics and Aviation Business Administration in the heart of Singapore in a burgeoning educational hub.
ERCI was established in 2003 by ERC Holdings (ERC) to provide education with a difference and raise the bar in education services in Singapore. ERC Holdings was founded by a group of successful Asian entrepreneurs in 1999 to cultivate a strong entrepreneurial culture in Asia. To date, more than 10,000 students have graduated from ERCI.
