Ethiopian Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the University of Mississippi, to introduce different aviation related training programmes into the existing courses of Ethiopian Aviation Academy (EAA).

The programmes to be introduced include Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC), Aviation Executive EMBA and a four-year engineering degree program aimed at upgrading EAA's existing two-year Aircraft Maintenance training.

The MOU will be instrumental in diversifying and upgrading the training programmes to meet both the Airlines demand and further fill the aviation skill gap in the African continent.

With an annual intake of 4000 trainees, EAA is the largest and most modern aviation academy in Africa, and recognised an an ICAO regional Training Centre of Excellence.
