Executive MBA in Business Continuity Management

The PECB University Executive MBA in Business Continuity Management is designed for candidates that want to develop a comprehensive understanding of how to manage business disruptions, emergencies or threats in an organization.

Description

Through the program, candidates gain the necessary competence on how to react in emergency situations, and how to manage them successfully so that the operations and business continuity of the organization are not distorted. The courses in this program prepare candidates in the areas of disaster recovery, business response, risk analysis, information management and other.  

About This Course

Apart from the theoretical aspect, the program also provides a practical explanation and understanding of business continuity management. Interconnection of theoretical and practical knowledge in 'Specialization' and 'Elective' courses makes graduates capable to apply their expertise when treating serious situations in an organization. On the other hand, 'Business Management' and 'Strategic Alignment' courses are carefully developed and designed to offer a dynamic approach and practical insights on how to lead teams and organizations, blending eLearning study methods, group discussions, solving case studies and simulations from Harvard Business Publishing Education, and capitalizing this knowledge in the Capstone Project.

Candidates develop their strategic thinking through relevant courses offered within the program, and become specialists able to respond to emergency situations, mitigate or prevent threats, and recover from them. This Executive MBA is suitable for candidates seeking managerial and executive roles in business continuity management, in either public or private sector.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how to estimate exposure to vulnerability, develop response actions and prospective reaction plans, business continuity plans, and disaster recovery frameworks.
  • Prepare yourself with the necessary knowledge and skills to secure a leading role in business continuity management, with a general understanding of security and risk management as well.
