ASIS International and IE Business School Launch Certificate Program for Security Executives


Alexandria, Va. 2016-01-14

ASIS International (ASIS), the largest membership organization for security management professionals that crosses industry sectors, and Madrid-based IE Business School, Europe’s No. 1 business school, have collaborated on a new certificate program to provide security managers education in areas identified to be essential for current and future management positions. The new program is built upon Effective Management for Security Professionals, the successful four-day executive education course established by ASIS and IE Business School in 2011. The new program launches in January 2016.

The IE Executive Development Certificate will be awarded to ASIS members who complete four executive education courses within a two-year period. The four courses have been selected from a list of existing IE Business School programs for their suitability for security professionals seeking to develop their business skills.

Participants may choose four of the following five programs:

  • Leading Change and Innovation (4 days)
  • High Impact Leadership (3 days)
  • Executive Negotiation Workshop (2 days)
  • Communication Skills and Public Speaking Workshop (3 days)
  • Strategic Project Management (3 days)

“This initiative complements and widens the content of the ASIS/IE Business School’s Effective Management for Security Management for Security Professionals program and represents a step forward toward ASIS’ goal of providing high quality education for its members worldwide,” stated Juan Muñoz, CPP, chapter chairman, ASIS Spain, who has collaborated with IE Business School in designing this new certificate for ASIS members. “This program equips security executives with the knowledge and skills required to make high-level decisions within the organization.”

ASIS members are entitled to an exclusive fee of €12.000. This price includes matriculation on all four selected programs, class materials, coffee and lunches throughout each program, networking activities during each program.

Upon completion of all four programs, participants will become part of the IE Executive Alumni Community and will receive further benefits that include:
