ASIS International and Northeastern University, a private research university announced the introduction of Business Concepts for the Effective Security Manager—a four-day executive education program for mid-to-upper level security managers. The program will be offered in March and October 2011 in Boston, Mass.
Content for the new program draws from Northeastern’s graduate curriculum and includes six, half-day sessions on topics such as finance, negotiation, marketing and strategic thinking, as well as decision-making and change implementation. The program concludes with a one-day case study.
ASIS member and former security practitioner, Christopher Walker, heads the seasoned faculty team assembled by Northeastern for the ASIS program. Other members of the team were selected to develop and teach this program based on their prior experience in business and in security management.
