ABS’ MBA programmes are aimed at professionals who wish to increase their skill and knowledge portfolios, and to help them achieve their career goals.

Mark Saunders, our lead course designer, spent many years consulting on Information Security for enterprises of all sizes, explains. “It is clear that Board Members often do not understand the opportunities and risks inherent in managing information. Most management and board level executives are well schooled in the traditional management skills, but few have the skillset and knowledge to truly understand the risks and costs associated with poorly run information security programmes to their organisation. These threats and opportunities will only become more central to the strategic direction of all business in the next 20 years.
