Nadine Itani

The approach the university takes on the Air Transport topics is progressive and empowering. The PhD degree added a brand to my competencies in the workplace and I am recognized among my peers, co-workers as being the one who knows how to find answers. It means a lot to me to sustain my relationship with Cranfield University as I take pride in being part of Cranfield big family overseas.

Nadine Itani, Managing Partner at Aviation Minds, Transport Systems, PhD, 2015
