MSc in Security Management

Posted by Damian-Evans on Fri, 05/30/2008 - 21:26

Hi All,

I've been in the Security Industry for 7 years at a supervisory level (5 star hotel & large multi national distribution) and am looking at a course in Security Management (MSc) from L'boro University (Distance Learning over 4 years)to further my knowledge and progress my career at a management level.

I wondered if anyone had done anything similar or had any advice or tips on how to progress with this.

Also, I'm based in the UK, but have plans eventually to emigrate to the USA - mainly New York. Would a qualification such as an MSc be recognised over there or be an advantage or any help at all to a career in Security Management?

Kind Regards

Re:MSc in Security Management

answer this one question at you will get a guest pass to attend an upcoming leadership telesummit "Leading with Presence and Influence." Help executive coach Debora McLaughlin with her research for her upcoming book "Personal Power of Influence" and get free executive coaching too! I've worked with Debora and it will be great.

Msc in security management

The MSc in Security and Risk Management allows you to develop a detailed knowledge of aspects of crime, risk and managing security in organisations. You will develop an understanding of a range of theoretical models that explains why and how people commit crime, how to analyse and assess risk, and how to manage security. You will also learn how to design, conduct and critically appraise research within these areas. The course will be of immense professional value to those working within a security context, either in the private or public sector.

The US is stodgy about the transfer of certifications, particularly in the area of security, though security firms will know the value of an individual certification (especially if you explain it to them in a short cover letter.) Many firms will allow you to work pending US certification, citing your previous international certification as proof of experience and intent.
