Alastair Allison

Alastair undertook the MSc in Corporate Risk and Security Management as a mature student aged 40 whilst working within the defence industry in 2005.

 “I was motivated to take the course to improve my employment prospects after having struggled to get to interview when leaving the Royal Air Force after 16 years service”. Alastair thoroughly enjoyed the course and it fulfilled all his expectations.

“Since graduating, the MSc has paid for itself many times over. It was a vital element in my securing a job with Zurich Insurance and in securing my current post as Chief Risk Officer”.

Most of Alastair’s peers are either qualified Accountants or Actuaries and he believes that the key thing which distinguishes his CV from his peers and enabled him to secure such a senior role is the MSc he gained from the University of Southampton.
