Master of Science in Business Continuity Management Online
Norwich University is launching the Master of Science in Business Continuity Management online, the first masterâ€™s degree in the United States focused solely on business continuity.
The masterâ€™s degree provides practitioners with the credentials to advance into upper level positions within their organization, and distinguish themselves within the field.
The MSBC degree provides a comprehensive, in-depth, and practical understanding of all aspects of business continuity management. The topics include plan development, emergency response, crisis management and communications, risk management, organizational resiliency, IT continuity, testing, implementation, and regulatory issues.
Because continuity of operations is as much needed in the public sphere as the private, the MSBC program is appropriate for both public-sector and private-sector continuity directors.
Students meld theory and practice by applying their learning to their own place of business through the unique case study system. By analyzing and improving the systems of their employer, students gain an understanding of the practical application of theoretical concepts, while their employer realizes an immediate return on its investment.
Students join cohorts of like-minded professionals in highly interactive classrooms to share experiences, challenges, and solutions. Much of the learning comes through constant, lively discussion with faculty and fellow students, and networking with professionals across the field.
Classes will begin December 2008, and further information can be found at:
