Published on January 27, 2021 Updated on January 27, 2021

In a fast-paced environment, the Certification in Business Administration – Security, Defense, and Space Industries (CBA-SDS) from IAE Nice, entirely taught in English, is designed for professionals in the aerospace, security, civil protection, and defense sector. Michel Bosco, who in charge if this Certification, is describing the programme below:

The space, defense, and security markets behave somehow differently from the open market: competitive forces are shaped by regulatory, security and safety considerations, and business in these sectors requires the application of management practices that are not commonly used in other industrial and commercial sectors.

The IAE Nice Graduate School of Management of the Université Côte d’Azur (formerly Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis) is offering a:

Certification in Business Administration – Security, Defense, and Space Industries (CBA-SDS)

to empower students with specific managers’ skills to overperform in the security, civil protection, aerospace, or defense markets. This Certificate (CBA SDS) is entirely taught in English, mostly on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays over a few weeks in June, and designed for professionals or graduates willing to gain in-depth knowledge of business administration in sectors such as aerospace, security and civil protection, and defense.

Who should attend the classes?

The CBA-SDS is attractive to individuals who wish to broaden the range of opportunities towards a greater career:

  •  Managers and engineers who operate in companies outside of the space, defense, and security sectors, to improve their chances to be recruited in these highly attractive and growing industries worldwide
  •  Young graduates in engineering and other disciplines, to complete their training and access more job opportunities
  • Military personnel, security and civil protection practitioners who intend to transition into industry, for instance upon early retirement

The CBA-SDS is attractive to companies and public institutions in the space, defense, and security industries, whose HR departments can make it an upskilling instrument towards:

  • Continuing education and talent promotion: by sponsoring employees, including engineers, law or political science graduates who are considering management positions
  •   Recruitment improvement: when recruiting from other sectors, sponsoring newcomers to accelerate their acculturation to the space, defense, and security sectors

The CBA-SDS is attractive for educational institutions, professional retraining organizations, and alumni associations, as the Certificate facilitates access to new opportunities resulting from the increased investment of the EU in the areas of space, defense and security.
