This graduate course is only for students participating in the ASEAN-Australia Defence Postgraduate Scholarship Program.

This course will explore what it means to be a leader in defence in ASEAN. Exploring both Civilian and Military contributions to defence leadership, this course will aim to develop the skills future leaders need to contribute to the development and security of their nations. The course emphasizes the importance of inter-personal skills, including the development of strong cohorts and networks among course members and ability to work with others to achieve the goals of the group.

DL-ASEAN B will include exposure to specific areas of defence management including but not limited to: strategic planning; international engagement; civil military relations; values and leadership; governance and accountability frameworks; industry policy; capability development and material acquisition; personnel management; resource management and defence science and technology.  It will offer learning opportunities for how Australia approaches the idea of defence leadership, including engagement visits with Australia's Department of Defence, the Australian Defence Force, regional Defence Attache's posted to Australia, and other centres of Professional Military Education such as the Australian Defence College.

This course will support the aims of the ASEAN-Australia Defence Postgraduate Scholarship Program, supporting the students in their development as future defence leaders in ASEAN, as well as their academic skills while studying at the Australian National University.
