MIT announces date for its 2012 "Crisis Management / Business Continuity" Program!
MIT is pleased to announce its Professional Education Short Program: "Crisis Management and Business Continuity" for 2012. Join us at the MIT campus in Cambridge MA on July 23 - 27, 2012.
Our comprehensive program provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect companies and government agencies - terrorism, pandemic, cyber security, communications, 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 executive who oversees 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. Many case studies of actual crisis situations are used to emphasize and enhance the concepts. Several interactive class activities provide additional hands-on experience. 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.
Register by June 15 and save 10% on program tuition. Please reference priority code DRJ10.
This is the third year of our extremely successful program. For more information, click the banner or click here.
