Course content

This programme draws upon core modules from the MSc Strategic Studies and the Business School MBA. The combined programme will study the synergy between the strategic policies, decision-making, leadership and operational applications of national and international security institutions and those of large and small organisations in the business and non-governmental sectors.

We will examine these issues - the crossover in the practice and knowledge experienced by a range of actors in both national and international security and non-security organisations -within the context of a globalized, international system of rapid strategic, technological and economic change.
