Risk, Disaster and Environmental Management MSc
This course looks at all risks in the business environment together with a strong analysis of the consequences when things go wrong.
Businesses and organisations increasingly need to anticipate the likelihood and consequences of unexpected events and the necessary short and long term responses.
This course is structured around the three core themes of risk, disaster and environmental management:
-Risk - you will study a wide range of risks in business, organisational and geographical environments. You will learn to identify, assess and manage these risks.
-Disaster - the disaster management element of the course will develop your ability to analyse the consequences when things go wrong, and will provide the practical skills for disaster prevention, preparedness, mitigation and management.
-Environment - the course will help you understand how we interact with the natural environment. Many environmental disasters are induced by human activity with potentially long term effects.
The course also covers the growing body of health, safety and environmental legislation.
