The course is based on completing the Induction Workshop plus eight modules over one to five years, which are taught over three-day periods. Teaching takes place across global locations including London, Dubai and Frankfurt. Students also take on a project/dissertation in an air transport related subject, which is usually completed within six to twelve months. From developing new safety measures to social media marketing in the aviation world, students choose their own research focus and often use the project as a way into a new career.

Students who choose not to do the project, or are unable to complete the programme within the five years, receive a Postgraduate Certificate on successful completion of four modules, including two core modules, or a Postgraduate Diploma on successful completion of eight modules.

Core modules
-Active Safety Management (EPM836)
-Crisis Management (EPM828)

Is this course for me?

The MSc Organisational Resilience is designed to meet the requirements of industry and the professionals who are either currently employed in it or who seek to develop advanced capability. There are many currently working in the sector who have long-term experience and are seeking validation and evidence of this through the achievement of postgraduate qualification.

The programme provides an opportunity for advancement to those already employed in resilience roles, for example as security, crisis or business continuity managers or heads of function, who wish to broaden their industry knowledge base and management and analytical skills with a view to enhancing their career prospects. Secondly, the programme is designed to appeal to people with general management roles and experience who are interested in moving into the resilience sector or who have been made responsible for the implementation and management of resilience within their organisation.

Many of the students on this course already work in roles such as risk management, continuity management, or are in the armed forces. This programme is for students who wish to apply academic rigour to their professional capability and development, and will allow successful graduates to be differentiated from and more competitive than their peers who may not have taken such an approach.

What will this course cover?

Organisational resilience requires, because of the growing inter-relationship and blurred boundaries between the various elements, and the constant development of new risks and the need to mitigate them; the development of organisational and individual capability and knowledge across a range of contributing areas and of the organisational behaviours needed to support them. Therefore, this programme is designed to attract and educate those with a specialist interest in the following areas and sub-disciplines:
• security
• business continuity
• crisis and incident management
• emergency management
• disaster response and recovery

All of these components are to some extent complementary and considered to be contributing elements to the understanding and developed capability to devise, plan and manage resilience within organisations. By allowing students to take a holistic approach to the subject matter and to understand the theories that inform it, the course allows them to develop confidence, capability, critical and multi-dimensional thinking at high levels. Current and relevant, the course keeps pace with world developments and the changing dynamics of resilience planning and implementation.

Modules

• Threat, Risk and Impact Perspectives
• Security Management
• Civil Protection, Crisis and Emergency Management
• Business Continuity Management and Perspectives
• Research and Dissertation

Careers

A huge range of businesses need to plan for resilience, so we tailor the programme to suit your particular industry. You can specialise in the areas most relevant to your career.

During the course you'll be able to develop and test theories and plans that will be directly linked to your area of interest or the needs of your organisation. This will create a solid academic basis for further academic research, including a possible PhD.
