Course content

This programme will equip you with the skills to help your organisation function effectively in the event of business threatening events.

With a clear focus on developing your confidence and capabilities in organisational resilience, this programme will equip you with the necessary skills and information to give your organisation the ability to continue to function effectively in the event of business threatening events.

Throughout the programme, you will apply current theories, concepts and practices to organisational resilience. We focus on learning that is anchored in reality rather than the sterility of pure theory, exploring real problems and identifying innovative solutions which can be applied effectively in the competitive and dynamic organisational environment.

Recognising the range of businesses that need to plan for resilience, you can tailor the programme to suit your needs and specialise in areas of particular relevance to your career. Therefore, on graduation, you will have developed a focused capability on the aspect of organisational resilience that affects you, with a broader mastery of related and linked disciplines and issues.

You will be able to develop and test theories and plans which will be directly linked to your area of interest or organisational needs providing relevance, and a solid academic basis for further development, research or career progression.

Our supportive course team is drawn from practising experts from resilience disciplines, as well as from the University’s own academic staff. Due to their industry knowledge and academic expertise, our tutors can provide you with the practical, managerial and intellectual skills and knowledge which will set your organisation and your people apart when planning for and responding to resilience challenges.

We pride ourselves on the support we give to you face-to-face and electronically using our virtual learning environment. Utilising our online learning package helps maximise the time spent on relating the issues in the programme to your company and minimises your time away from your workplace.

This course has been designed to make high quality education as accessible as possible for those who are unable to attend programmes on-site, but with the requirement to adhere to the highest of academic standards.

You will also benefit from a series of workshops, one within each module.
