Graduate development programmes
UAE national development:
A strategic approach
As part of its UAE national development strategy, Etihad Airways launched its structured graduate programme with the aim of developing and preparing future UAE national aviation leaders.
Etihad Airways currently offers UAE nationals the opportunity to join more than 22 specialised development programmes spanning across disciplines that include HR, IT, Finance, Sales, Revenue Management, Airport Operations, and including the Cadet Pilot and Technical Engineering Programmes.
The programmes use experiential learning, coaching, international assignments and classroom training, and are accredited by reputable bodies such as the Institute of Leadership and Management (ALM) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The development programmes target dynamic and ambitious UAE nationals through a recruitment strategy aimed at schools, colleges and immediate hires.
