Course content

The MSc Crisis and Disaster Management brings together the areas of crisis management, risk management and disaster management with the aim of providing students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of current approaches to crisis 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 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.

Students can 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 will also look to develop knowledge and skills in risks appraisal, operations management, and crisis communication. Students can learn how to identify and address conflict and vulnerability within organisations and disaster zones and how to address these effectively.
