The purpose of the MSc in Fire and Rescue Service Management is to promote increased understanding of critical management processes and hopefully to enable satisfactory performance in high-consequence, high risk situations.

Strategic managers in the Fire and Rescue Service in risk critical situations face unique challenges in both preparing for and dealing with situations which threaten life and critical infrastructure or reputation.

This postgraduate course brings together insights regarding risk perception and decision making across domains ranging from the operational context, cognitive psychology, economics, and public policy. It suggests strategies to ensure a mature effective response to various managerial situations.

MSc Fire and Rescue Service Management develops the abilities of critical decision makers to grasp a situation, formulate a response assess success and failure and redefine an improved response. The course offers tools and strategies which allow Fire and Rescue Service managers to generate, evaluate, and select among decision options.

PROFESSIONAL ACCREDITATION

There are potential short-term placements within fire and rescue services.

There are exchange visits to Hong Kong Fire Service offered to a limited number of students and also opportunities to work with International partners to develop fire and rescue service infrastructure in those countries where there are limited resources available.

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ASSESSMENT]]
MSc students take practical classes, carry out casework and conduct lab-based dissertation research projects. Students also have access to a wide range of analytical instrumentation in the Faculty of Science and Technology’s Analytical Unit. In collaboration with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service all students are tested in a simulated command environment.

Assessment is by examinations, practicals and coursework. Practical assessment involves command simulations.

The course focuses on managerial decision making within the fire and rescue service, in both an operational and non-operational context. It includes environmental scanning (both external and internal), strategy formulation (strategic or long range planning), strategy implementation, and evaluation and control. Situational awareness and risk decision making in time pressured and high risk situations. Students will be tested in command simulations representative of those applicable to the emergency incident domain. The theory and practical sessions will build confidence through the development of practical expertise and specialist knowledge in the field of strategic management.

Testimonials

"Choosing to pursue the IMBA from IÉSEG is one of the best and smartest decisions I have ever made. As an American, I decided to further my education in Europe in order to gain a holistic perspective on business, as I would like to work in a global company after finishing my studies. I chose IÉSEG in particular for its prominent location and positive reputation regarding their programs and international focus. This program has given me the invaluable opportunity to not only work with, but learn from peers and professors from all over the world. IÉSEG also has a strong career support program; part of which enables us to meet with top business executives. Thanks to that program, I was able to secure a post-coursework internship here in Paris at a global, billion-dollar French company early on in the year. My experience here so far has been everything I imagined and more. Not only have I learned more than I thought possible in one year, but I have also been exposed to a new culture, a new language, and have met the most wonderful people."

MSc Fire Safety Engineering is concerned with the application of fire science into the practical context of built environment. This involves skills and knowledge crossing all areas of learning including fire chemistry, physics of heat transfer, biology and toxicity, structures, law and legislation, environmental impact, risk management and design. Combined into a single-discipline, this meets a challenge of modern industrial needs. Graduates have become leaders in a range of backgrounds from fire services to civil engineering to safety management. The course includes study of fires in buildings, engineering design projects and research methods. There are a range of options offered each year, including computational fluid dynamics, risk management, accidents and catastrophes, fire engineering solutions, incident command, fire safety law.

The course commences in Semester 1 with Fires in Buildings which examines: fundamental principles; mechanisms controlling spread of fires and fire development in enclosures; movement and smoke control; fire resistance and fire severity; human behaviour in fires and evacuation; the mechanism of fire suppression agents. Running in parallel, a Research Methods module supports the Dissertation, which is an in-depth study involving theoretical, computational, experimental or investigative analysis. The Dissertation is undertaken in Semester 3 together with the Engineering Design Project, which is an integration of themes of design, ICT and technology within a practical context requiring students to work in teams as well as individuals.

It is supported by an established research base (Centre for Research in Fire and Hazards Science) which builds on the training and educational programmes offered by the Institution of Fire Engineers. Full-time students can underpin their studies with a range of balancing modules. The remainder of the MSc is a series of options which may involve external speakers as well as expertise from our staff. Students should check availability if they wish to undertake any option in particular.

The course is designed for students who will eventually hold senior positions within the fire-related professions. Throughout the programme, emphasis will be placed on self-motivation, critical thinking and analytical depth. MSc Fire Safety Engineering is concerned with the study of fire development and prevention and the means by which its consequence may be reduced to a minimum in human, environmental and financial terms. The course emphasises Fire Safety Engineering in the context of buildings and infrastructure. It is supported by an established research base and builds on the training and educational programmes offered by the Institution of Fire Engineers.

The application of Fire Safety Engineering is multi-disciplinary and it is envisaged that, as in the professional world, you will carry out project work, which will facilitate dialogue between the Fire Engineer and other members of the design and management teams. It is the development of novel technological and engineering solutions within the often contradictory constraints of safety, economy and the law which pose the challenge in the course. The course is fully accredited by three professional institutions (CIBSE, EI and IFE) that play an active part in ensuring the course is developed to meet professional needs.

While the programme was conceived primarily for those already working in the public sector environment, it has evolved into a highly successful multidisciplinary programme that is appropriate to modern professionals, from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have an interest in issues of public policy.

Aims

By the end of the programme students will:
-Have an understanding of the different conceptual and theoretical perspectives applied to public policy and management, and public sector reform
-Have an understanding of the principles and practices underlying the implementation of public policy processes, and have acquired knowledge of `real world' examples of public policy/sector reform from leading experts
-Have an understanding of the role and importance of institutions for public policy and management
-Have developed skills in initial analysis of development economics, public policy, management and development studies, and in communicating their analysis in the form of clearly written and readable documents
-Have a good command of current theory, policy and practice in relation to some of the following specialist areas; public policy process and methods; public sector economics; development and economic policy; privatisation and public enterprise reform; public sector accounting and organisational change
-Have developed basic research skills through a supervised dissertation research project

Teaching and learning

Part-time students complete the full-time programme over 24 months. There are NO evening or weekend course units available on the part-time programme, therefore if you are considering taking a programme on a part-time basis, you should discuss the requirements with the Programme Director first and seek approval from your employer to have the relevant time off. Timetabling information is normally available from late August from the Programme Administrator and you will have the opportunity to discuss course unit choices during induction week with the Programme Director.

Coursework and assessment

The taught elements of the programme, carrying 120 credits overall is continuously assessed by a variety of methods (project based reports, essays), involving largely individual submissions, but also elements of group work.

Participants must also complete a 12,000-15,000 word dissertation on a topic of their choice approved by the Programme Directors. Students are encouraged to base their dissertations on topics of direct professional concern to themselves.

Career opportunities

The course is intended primarily for those with experience of the public sector and those involved in public policy formulation and implementation. The nature of the course also ensures that graduates are well equipped to pursue careers in the public sector or in public policy and development as researchers, advisers or consultants.

The Global Development Institute (GDI) has a large and diverse postgraduate population, including a large number of students from outside the UK (85% of our students are drawn from outside the UK, particularly from Africa, Asia and Western Europe, but also reaching out to Latin America, the Middle East, North America and the Pacific). Many of our alumni have gone on to prestigious careers in the public service or in the NGO/charitable and private sectors, as policy officers, managers, consultants or development practitioners - while others have pursued further academic study leading to a PhD and academic careers. Since its foundation, GDI has trained over 7000 individuals from 170 different countries.

This is an interdisciplinary, research-based programme. It is offered by a consortium of five European universities: University of Leipzig, University of Vienna, University of Wroclaw, University of Roskilde and LSE, where it is based in the Department of Economic History.

This wide-ranging academic programme combines global history, international studies, area studies, and social science approaches to the study of globalisation processes. You will spend one of the two years of the programme at one of the partner institutes.

Courses consider the origin and outcomes of distinct patterns of economic growth in various time and parts of the world. The programme also seeks to explain how and when some economies diverged from the path taken by industrialising and industrialised countries, while the growth performance of others was more erratic, and why problems of poverty, inequality, instability and violence still characterise large parts of the world.

The programme is aimed at students with a first degree in social sciences and humanities with an interest in issues of globalisation. Minimum entry requirements are a BA degree (or recognised equivalent from an accredited institution), sufficient undergraduate training to do graduate work in the chosen field, excellent written and oral command of English and at least basic German knowledge.

Students study for two years, one year each at two of the partner institutes, and applicants wishing to study at LSE for either their first or second year will be required to take the MSc Global History, based in the Department of Economic History.

Applications will be handled by the University of Leipzig and full details can be found at http://www.uni-leipzig.de/zhs/erasmus_mundus
