Chevening is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Strategy and Security Institute, starting in October 2013
Chevening is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Strategy and Security Institute (SSI) at the University of Exeter to provide for up to 2 full scholarships for the new MA Applied Security Strategy (MStrat) course, starting in October 2013. The Strategy and Security Institute is an interdisciplinary research centre established by the University of Exeter to directly address the strategic deficit of a world beset by instability and insecurity. Building on a critical mass of expertise within the University and a cohort of strategic partners from other organisations, the Institute carries out research, consultancy and teaching in the field of global security and strategy, particularly relating to how individuals and organisations of all kinds deal with conflict, unrest, and crisis under intense pressure.
SSI’s MA Applied Security Strategy will be taught from October 2013 to meet the needs of current and future strategic practitioners and anyone who wishes to understand strategy in action. This interdisciplinary programme is designed to develop confident, critical thinkers with the potential to lead on the development and execution of policy and strategy in an uncertain, culturally-diverse and resource-constrained world. The programme, which takes a sharp, highly-relevant and practitioner-targeted focus, employs simulations and fieldtrips alongside lectures, seminars and conferences with leading academics and practitioners to create and train experts in the fusion of strategic communications and intelligence to craft policy and strategy in the contemporary security arena. More information about the course and the SSI on the University of Exeter website.
