The purpose of this paper is to analyze the concept of educational security and its practical implications on national interests through a case study of the Romanian educational system. Until now several dimensions of security - military, economic, environment, cyber -  were fully described by the analysts. However, educational dimension of security is not theoretically developed.  

Analyzing the educational dimension and its issues makes it possible getting a complementary image on security and answers at what extent the educational system is prepared to respond to the biggest current threats to national security. A permanent challenge for the military higher education institutions is to prepare sufficient high quality trained people for the new missions. In this regard the paper will try to describe the present situation in relation with different aspects such as effects of the new changes inside of the military educational system or of the structural and organizational adaptations of the military organization.
