ASIS International, an association for security management professionals, announced a new strategic partnership with the École des Officiers de la Gendarmerie Nationale (EOGN), also known as the French Gendarmerie Officers Academy, which allows up to two ASIS members per year to enroll in the esteemed security management MBA program at the EOGN’s campus in Paris. The agreement also facilitates the joint development of future educational modules based on a common vision around the need to pool knowledge and resources to promote security as a strategic function within organizations.

“We are delighted to have concluded this important partnership that will bring additional value and opportunities to ASIS members and helps to put our society at the forefront of security education,” said Christina Duffey, 2019 president, ASIS International. 

Nicolas Le Saux, chairman of the European Advisory Council of ASIS International, added, “This agreement with EOGN is a game changer for ASIS in Europe. We hope that this agreement paves the way for similar partnerships with military and law enforcement organizations in other European countries.”

The agreement was signed on May 20.

"We are very pleased to sign this partnership with ASIS International, as this fits perfectly into the MBA's DNA, conceived to strengthen the public-private security co-production," said General Christophe Boyer, EOGN commander. “We hope that this alliance will open new doors for us to interact with the main players in international safety and security.”
