The Security Management course is an accredited, state-recognized course offered by the NBS Northern Business School University of Management and Security.

This course of study is offered at the NBS in two time models, namely full-time during the day for high school graduates and technical high school graduates and on Friday evenings and Saturdays for employed persons and trainees.

The special advantage: You can change the time model during your studies. For example, during a longer internship you are welcome to take part in courses in the extra-occupational time model and thus advance your studies quickly.

The career options

The importance of security services has steadily increased in recent years. On the one hand, a holistic understanding of security is taking up more and more space, even in medium-sized companies; Keywords here are, for example, compliance or white-collar crime. In addition, private security service providers are increasingly being used in areas that were previously the responsibility of the state.


Against the background of this development, the course is carried out with the close support of the Hamburg police.

Safety management ("SiMa") leads, directs and coordinates an organization with regard to all safety activities. The possible fields of employment for graduates are therefore very diverse and range, for example, from activities in corporate security to managerial positions in the private security industry.

Students will be able to develop and implement dynamic and static security concepts and adapt them flexibly to changes in the environment.

A solid business foundation opens the graduates' view of the economic context and thus enables holistic security management.

The employability of the students is further promoted during their studies through the integrated seminar program, the formal requirements for demanding tasks in the practical semester are laid by these seminars.

The study content

The Safety Management course (Bachelor of Arts) imparts a broad range of specialist knowledge through application-oriented teaching and the ability to responsibly identify problems relevant to practice, to work out possible solutions to problems and to critically weigh them up against one another, and to successfully implement a selected alternative solution in practice - also in an international context.

Taking on responsible tasks requires not only specialist knowledge, but also security and the willingness to make decisions. Accordingly, the training is also aimed at imparting key qualifications and promoting personal development.
