Apparently, the ZNDU is a new generation Defence and Security academic institution in Zimbabwe. Its distinct features are that it offers competitive academic study options in addition to serving as a national defence and security think-tank.
It was envisaged that the National Defence College would provide senior military officers, senior government officials/civilians and their counterparts from friendly countries within the Southern African Development Community (SADC) with analytical and conceptual tools to formulate comprehensive national security policy.
