MBA for Security Management online
Bob Dyson answers 5 employment questions that have been asked by Services enquirers:
5. Which employers particularly appreciate an MBA graduate with a Services background?
Obviously, the aerospace and defence industry have a special interest in MBA graduates with a military background but they are not the biggest ex-Services employer.
All commercial and public employers that were interviewed in surveys said that they would welcome applicants from the Armed Services.
Ex-military personnel who have held rank are thought to have demonstrated leadership under difficult circumstances, which is a quality that is sought by multi-national companies looking at succession planning.
Individual recruiters report that much depends on the applicant’s personality but Services personnel with an MBA are definitely getting the management job interviews, which is often the hardest part of starting a worthwhile second career.
Multi-national companies were the main contributors to these surveys and a list of them is available to all enquirers from this Ex-Mil newsletter.
(Anglia Ruskin University qualify this online MBA. It is particularly suitable for Servicemen and women who have held rank).

A Marine pulled into a little town, and found every hotel room was taken.
“You’ve got to have a room somewhere,” he pleaded. “Or just a bed, I don’t care where.”
“Well, I do have a double room with one occupant, a Navy guy,” admitted the manager, “and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I’m not sure it’d be worth it to you.”
“No problem,” the tired Marine assured him. “I’ll take it.”
The next morning the Marine came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
“How’d you sleep?” asked the manager.
The manager was impressed. “No problem with the other guy snoring, then?”
“Nope, I shut him up in no time.” Said the Marine.
“How’d you manage that?” asked the manager.
“He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room,” the Marine explained.
“I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, ‘Goodnight, sweety!’ and he sat up all night watching me.”
