Master's Degree in Risk and Emergency Management
IntroductionWhen managing and planning comprehensive safety in the area of civilian protection, conflicts in performance and coordination, as well as the lack of professionals with proper training for implementation, are common.
Administrations require experts with a comprehensive vision, familiar with the many areas in which such vision is important, able to analyze causes, intervene, coordinate and introduce proposals for implementation.
The studies of the Master in Management and Strategic Planning offer training for professionals in public safety, useful for Public Administrations demanding experts in any town, no matter how small, in any district.
Trained people are necessary to undertake public safety procedures and coordinate the different emergency teams.
The Master provides comprehensive training on techniques, producedures and application policies for planning and managing emergency situations. The programme is adapted to the needs for protection in a developed society such as ours.
