Course summary

Course Overview

The MSc Organisational Resilience is designed to provide those working in resilience roles, such as risk managers, security, crisis or business continuity managers, an opportunity for advancement to senior positions. The course is also particularly suited to those looking to advance their careers following service in the emergency services or military, given the flexible nature of the programme, combined with the course faculty experience. The University has strong links with industry and is a holder of the Silver Military Covenant Award. Our supportive tutors can provide you with the knowledge to help you to plan for, and respond to, resilience challenges.

The programme is particularly relevant to those who have long-term experience and are seeking validation and evidence of this through the achievement of a postgraduate qualification. It 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 be 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
  • threat risk and impact perspectives.

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.
