Online Vulnerability assessments with Sandra Stibbards

Opening the Door with Higher Education

Are Master’s degrees designed for your employment prospects or personal fulfilment? We are delighted to welcome friend of the BBA and Magazine Craig Smith, Head of Training and Development for Minerva Elite Performance to explore how higher education could possibly open the door by asking:

  • What areas of study will become the most employable for protectors?
  • Why can’t protectors just do a series of MOOCs (mass online open courses)?
  • Why do protectors gravitate towards subjects like war studies and how relevant is that for their career prospects?
  • By advocating for higher education are we saying many protectors are currently ‘missing’ something?
  • How can protectors differentiate between higher education providers?
  • What do all the levels actually mean?
