Flinders Uni adds national security course to MBA

South Australia’s Flinders University has introduced a new course to its Masters of Business Administration program designed to widen understanding of the defence and national security risks facing Australia.

The new Hacking for National Security (H4NS) course has been developed through the Defence Entrepreneurship program.

The H4NS course will allow students to engage with some of Australia’s top civilian national security experts. The initiative has been designed as a practical introduction to pressing national security problems.

H4NS will be supported by the Department of Defence’s D Start Catalyst program and delivered in partnership with Australian non-profit Common Mission Project Limited (CMP).

The DEP will be offered as part of the 12-month MBA Future Business stream, which includes 12 core business management subjects and up to 26 weeks of industry engagement and work-integrated learning.

“Flinders sees this innovative course as a great way to learn about the types of issues facing national security on many fronts,” said Flinders University College of Business, Government and Law Vice-President and Executive Dean Professor Michael Gilding.

“The Hacking for National Security course materials and exercises will not only fuel entrepreneurial minds but give students access to dozens of industry experts and on-the-ground defence personnel who have already faced system-wide communications failures or command decisions in the face of previously unseen, ambiguous national security attacks.”
