Focusing on the major issues of disaster resilience and risk reduction, the MDisMgt equips you with the applicable skills to confidently solve complex problems in high pressure environments.
We implement a holistic approach to disaster management, and provide the knowledge needed to plan frameworks, create policies, and device solutions.
A compulsory component of this programme is a research project, where you will demonstrate the critical thinking and analytical skills needed to independently approach a real-world issue in a disaster setting.
This Master of Disaster Management from University of Auckland draws on expertise from across the University. Beyond the Faculty of Engineering’s world-class academic roster, you’ll be able to learn from experts from Science, Architecture and Planning, Development Studies and Environmental Law.
The students come from a broad range of disciplines – though they vary in experience, they share a common goal to help communities prepare for, and recover from, natural disasters.
Recent disasters have generated a need to gain expert and specialist knowledge for many professionals, making this a highly relevant programme.
Disaster management is an inherently people-focused discipline, and our graduates have found work within the humanitarian field, as well as within governmental agencies.
