Welcome to Leadership School

Established with the aim of raising and developing talented managers our Corporation and the aviation industry as a whole will need in the future, Turkish Airlines Academy Leadership School was launced on 1st October 2012. The aim is to bring up new leaders with high performance potential who can keep up with the competition, come up with corporate related ideas and solutions for our fast growing Corporation and the aviation field in general.

Designed by the vision of being the first choice in aviation when it comes to diploma programme, our trainings were categorized into three main courses: ‘Self Management’, ‘Managing Others’ and ‘Operation Management’.

These trainings are delivered in collaboration with highly qualified experts and academicans. Additionally, it is aimed to bring up versatile leaders, benefiting from the knowledge and experiences of prominent names in leadership and world economics through Leadership School conferences.

Leadership School is aimed at candidates who wish to have a better career in their organization, as well as for those who work as senior managers. Leadership programs are serving as upbringing and developing programs, and their components are designed in coherence with these purposes. Developing programs are applied to managers and top executives.

We have a motto for our target group: To get the participants to gain a vision that helps us achieve the sustainable growth of our Corporation. We aim to develop the human resource embracing our Corporation’s mission, vision and strategies required to reach its goals.

The Leadership School, with the training concept integrated by the distance learning programs of Harvard University, is on its way to become a globally recognised school tracing the international education standards. Leadership School upbringing program participants are encouraged to come up with original ideas and projects through collaboration in training with prestigious universities.
