Crisis Management Course at MIT

About the Course (via MIT)

Preparing for a crisis is not a luxury; it is a necessity. You know the odds are high that your company will suffer a disaster or crisis at some point. You cannot say you weren’t ready; today’s extreme public and government scrutiny demand that you should have been prepared. MIT’s Crisis Management & Business Continuity course will help prepare you for the inevitable.

This comprehensive course provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect you and your organization — cyber security, supply chain, terrorism, pandemic, DR trends, emergency response, leadership, data breach, communications, news media, social media — from the experts involved with these efforts. We also examine strategies for job and career improvement. You will have the opportunity to interact with our lecturers and with your peers from industry, academia, and government.

By the end of the course, you will have the tools, knowledge, and understanding to benchmark, assess, and improve your business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis management program. This includes the course manual (print and/or e-files), templates, and current articles. You will gain valuable contacts, have plenty of networking opportunities, and acquire insights for immediate implementation.
