Executive Development programs are comprehensive in scope, designed to provide a grounding across the spectrum of security issues while building enduring personal networks. These flagship offerings range from a week to four weeks in length. They are often targeted at specific cohorts of national security professionals based on experience and seniority.
These courses aim to enhance participants’ knowledge while improving their ability to operate collaboratively across organisational boundaries to meet whole-of-government and whole-of-nation policy needs. Sessions include opportunities for frank and trusted interaction with outstanding policy leaders, including on questions of career pathways. To ensure balance and diversity of participation, there are sometimes limits to the numbers of officials an organisation can nominate for each iteration of a program.
