Course summary

Course Overview

Businesses are faced with and take risks constantly; and only those organisations who understand and can respond to risk challenges and impacts, demonstrating resilience, are truly capable and competitive. These businesses need analytical, capable and knowledgeable teams and leaders who are able to plan, operate, manage and ultimately succeed in the ‘VUCA’ world of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity.

The MBA Risk and Resilience enhances the knowledge and capability of experienced professionals who are seeking to further their careers in a variety of sectors. It builds the levels of confidence and business understanding with a central focus on the influence of and need for risk and resilience capability that will help career progression. The MBA will equip you with the ability to effectively respond to unpredictable challenges and succeed in competitive business environments; where margins of time, resource and competitive advantage may be narrow; and where acumen and agility matter.

Flexible learning

We provide a flexible and personable approach to teaching through distance learning technologies, inclusive tutorial support, scenario and case study-based teaching.

Our novel approach to teaching, with online delivery and a virtual classroom capability, helps our students make the most of their time, giving them the freedom to manage work life responsibilities. Students take part in virtual scenario based exercises, supported by up-to-date material that provide complex and challenging content to stretch capabilities in a supportive learning environment.

Course Details

Led and developed by our business and resilience teams, the programme involves the study of both internal and external environments, challenges and opportunities, with a focus on the multiple aspects of risk and resilience. The MBA blends business and organisational management theoretical and applied approaches with those related to the requirement to maintain organisational viability in the challenging and dynamic business operating and strategic environments.

The programme is focused on work-based problems, allowing students to present and discuss ‘real world’ problems and offer meaningful solutions. This applied approach ensures that our students can be equipped with developed knowledge and skill sets that will serve them and their employer well in mitigating risk and achieving resilience.

Any organisation with the need to compete, thrive and survive in the VUCA world will also need its people to be incisive, analytical and responsive to change. That will give them the necessary competitive advantage; and you, equipped with your knowledge and capability, will have developed and evidenced your own.
