SES Essential Insights

National Security College | Professional course



This intensive three-day program for senior national security decision and policy makers is designed to challenge, educate and inspire. Participants will hear from world-class experts on the most pressing national security matters of the day; and will leave with up-to-date knowledge and insights on how best to tackle key issues and lead effectively in today’s complex environment.

However it is ideal for those who can’t attend the long-form program or who have attended the program previously and want to keep their knowledge current. The program will be of benefit to anyone in a position in the senior executive service or equivalent in the national security community, broadly defined.
