Course content

In today’s interconnected world, businesses and organisations are facing significant environmental, societal and economic challenges. These can range from climate change, to economic recession and natural disasters, to higher levels of insecurity. Anticipating and managing the consequences of such real-world issues and events is increasingly relevant and important.

Businesses and organisations increasingly need to anticipate the likelihood and consequences of unexpected events and the necessary short and long term responses. This course looks at risks in the business and organisational environment, and considers the consequences when things go wrong.

The programme is structured around three core management themes:

Risk: You will study a wide range of risks in business, organisational and geographical environments. You'll get the opportunity to learn how to identify, assess and manage these risks.

Disaster: The disaster management element of the course will enable you to develop your ability to analyse the consequences when things go wrong, and will give you the opportunity to develop the practical skills for disaster prevention, preparedness, mitigation and management.

Environment: The course will enable you to understand how we interact with the natural environment and will explore how human activity can be managed to minimise negative environmental damage.
