I think the course has provided a fairly solid introduction to security management. I think the assignments are a good way of exploring the sector in greater detail and this encourages the student to do research of their own. This really gets the student to think about the attributes a security manager should possess and ultimately what is expected of them on a professional level should security management either be their current job or future aspiration.
