Homeland Security Specialization - Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)

Homeland Security

The rise in terrorist activity and natural disasters in recent years has intensified the importance of and need for homeland security in the United States and abroad. Today, it plays an expanding and dynamic role in virtually every business and government institution. The Homeland Security specialization is designed for leaders in the private and public sectors interested in analyzing homeland security and crisis planning from a business perspective.

Explore how the field of homeland security has evolved, as well as the global implications it has on how an organization operates, internally and externally. From the principles of global terrorism to risk-based analysis strategies and emerging organizational and policy challenges, gain the insight and knowledge you need to confidently address organizational security issues, mitigate risk, and protect business infrastructure through critical thinking and applied research.
