In an constantly changing geopolitical landscape with new threats emerging, leaders of the future must be dynamic, possessing expertise that spans policy, law, and science. The Virginia Tech School of Public and International Affairs’ National Security Executive Leadership Program sets the bar for national security professional development, empowering people of all backgrounds through interdisciplinary training designed to bridge the gap between policy and technical knowledge and prepare them for critical leadership positions.
The National Security Executive Leadership Program is an intensive one-week, professional development program designed for professionals interested in national security. The program will be offered from October 31 to November 4, 2022. Participants will gain a firm foundational knowledge of the U.S. national security apparatus, instruments of national power, the appropriations process, and crisis decision-making, as well as insight into key technical and global policy issues. The program curriculum centers on how the technical, philosophical, and policy aspects of national security connect, and will include participatory learning in the classroom and via a day-long simulation.
Taught by national security leaders. Modules are taught by leading academics and policy experts, including from the uniformed services and federal agencies. Sessions include simulations including "A Game of Disruptive Operations inside the United States", case studies, interactive discussions, and networking opportunities.
The October 31 - November 4, 2022 program is being offered online.
Participants who successfully complete all requirements will receive 3.5 CEUs and a Virginia Tech certificate of achievement.
