ASIS International Partners with IE Business School in Madrid to Launch New Executive Education Programme for Security Managers

Alexandria, VA 2010-12-20

ASIS International (ASIS), the preeminent organization for security professionals, and IE Business School, a leading global business school, announce the introduction of Effective Management for Security Professionals—a five-day executive education programme for mid-to-upper level security managers.  The new certificate programme, which focuses on business fundamentals, will be offered February 28-March 3, 2011 on the IE Business School campus in Madrid, Spain.

Content for the new programme draws from IE Business School’s graduate curriculum and includes sessions on topics such as finance, strategy, marketing, and leadership, as well as corporate governance and change management. Through a series of interactive discussions, case studies, and teamwork exercises, participants are exposed to the frameworks and tools required to succeed in a competitive, international business environment.

“Our partnership with IE Business School and the addition of this new executive education program demonstrates our commitment to advancing the professionalism of ASIS members around the globe,” stated ASIS President Joseph R. “Bob” Granger, CPP. “Mid-level security professionals who seek to advance in their careers now have the opportunity to build and strengthen necessary business acumen and gain the ability to confidently formulate and effectively ‘sell’ their security plans.”

“IE’s objective is to train leaders in all fields of professional activity - leaders who create collective value by instigating competitive business projects without losing sight of their responsibilities and commitments to their environment,” says IE Business School Dean, Santiago Iñiguez. “We are convinced that successful business professionals of the future will be those that best know how to interact with an increasingly sophisticated and demanding social environment, accepting with full responsibility their role in the collective creation of value. This philosophy is present in our attitude, our vision, and in our understanding of how to develop professionals in the current business environment.”

This program expands the scope of ASIS executive education offerings—joining the Wharton/ASIS Program for Security Executives, established in 2004, and the new Business Concepts for the Effective Security Manager, which was developed in partnership with Boston-based Northeastern University.

The registration fee for ASIS members is 3.600€; nonmembers’ registration fee is 4.500€.
