Law enforcement and security professionals will have access to Australia's first distance education MBA program designed specifically for their field when Charles Sturt University (CSU) begins a new course next year.
 
Developed in consultation with policing experts and academics, CSU’s Master of Business Administration (Law Enforcement and Security) will provide graduates opportunities to further their careers in middle and senior management roles.
 
The course is a joint offering from CSU’s Australian Graduate School of Policing and Security (AGSPS) and the School of Management and Marketing, and AGSPS senior lecturer Mr Greg Linsdell said drawing on both areas of expertise allowed the University to offer something unique.
 
“Law enforcement and security professionals worldwide occupy a continuously and rapidly changing environment,” he said.
 
“At the executive level there is also a growing expectation people will have a strong business and management background to draw on.
 
“The new course meets these demands for business knowledge among law enforcement and security executives and managers, and provides opportunities to engage with the latest management theories and leading business practices.”
 
Mr Linsdell said the course was designed for professionals across the law enforcement, security, defence and regulatory sectors, including a wide range of international, federal, state, public and private sector agencies.
 
“This is a specialised degree designed to give you the ability to influence your organisation and inspire others,” he said.
 
“Students will study a blend of core, elective and specialist subjects that will allow them to graduate with a qualification that is unique to their professions and meets their interests and career aspirations.
 
“It enhances graduates’ business knowledge and gives them the skills to effectively lead and manage in the law enforcement and security sector.”
 
The course focuses on key business areas such as service delivery and performance, financial management and economics, marketing and sustainability, and ethics and accountability.
 
“Graduates will have a qualification that will make them stand out in their competitive industries for promotions or senior management roles,” Mr Linsdell said.
 
CSU is Australia’s leading provider of distance education with a comprehensive communication system enabling online forums, wikis, blogs, podcasts, access to library resources and assignment submission.
