MIT Professional Education announces its course: Crisis Management and Business Continuity, July, 2012
MIT Professional Education announces its course: Crisis Management and Business Continuity at the MIT campus in Cambridge Massachusetts on July 23 – 27, 2012.
This comprehensive program provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect companies and government agencies – terrorism, pandemic, cyber security, communications, and news media – from the authorities involved with these efforts. Program lecturers are knowledgeable and experienced industry, academic, and government agency experts. Participants also have many networking opportunities to interact with the lecturers and with their peers.
This program is for the Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Emergency Management, and Crisis Management practitioner or responder as well for the executives who oversee these disciplines.
Both novices and experienced personnel will benefit greatly from this program. The program offers an effective combination of lecture, case studies, field trip, and class participation activities. Students will also practice what is learned: the course concludes with a crisis exercise in which students take active roles in a simulated disaster, including a realistic news media briefing.
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.
