About this program
The MSc Crisis and Disaster Management programme aims to develop a better understanding of approaches to crisis, risk and disaster and the impact that such events may have on businesses, communities and nations. In particular, the programme addresses the issues of interruption to business and the need for preparedness, response and recovery strategies to minimise both economic and human losses arising from crises and disasters of both natural and human origins.
There is an increasing global demand for businesses, communities and nations to increase their resilience to potential crises and disasters, particularly through using the principles of crisis and disaster management, disaster preparedness, response and recovery planning. The use of simulations and engagement with practitioners gives students the opportunity to develop practical knowledge and insight about the processes and procedures associated with crisis and disaster management.
Students will learn to differentiate between the various phases of crisis and disaster management and be encouraged to critically reflect and appraise alternative approaches to managing crises and disasters. The programme also aims to develop a students knowledge and skills in risks appraisal, operations management, and crisis communication. There will be opportunities to learn how to identify and address conflict and vulnerability within organisations and disaster zones and how to address these effectively.
