Our Full-Time MBA graduate Abul Kekilbayev was selected from among over 500 global applicants for the Young Aviation Professionals Programme (YAPP), a special initiative organized by Airports Council International (ACI), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The 12-month annual programme is open to candidates who have advanced university qualifications and a minimum of two years professional working experience in aviation-related regulatory activities, and/or the air transport industry. Due consideration is also given during the selection process to gender and geographic diversity.
The selected candidates will be expected to contribute to each organization’s work programmes related to aviation safety, air navigation capacity and efficiency, air transport economics or aero-political issues, with attention to inter-relationships among ACI, ICAO and IATA. Each Young Aviation Professional will be guided throughout the programme by a subject-matter expert from each of the organizations.
