Message from Head of Department

Emergency and Disaster management is a profession! Making decisions under conditions of uncertainty, dealing with predictable or unexpected events and providing an appropriate response to challenges require unique skills and abilities. Become part of the future leadership that promotes readiness and resilience of civil societies to all potential hazards that national and international communities may face.


Taking steps to enhance preparedness and response for emergencies is a vital component of global activities aimed to increase the resilience of the international community on individual, environmental, societal, economic, and political levels.


Human resources, funds and substantial efforts have been invested in recent decades to reduce the risk of natural and human-made disasters. Today's ongoing crisis, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, clearly presents the crucial need for knowledge, skills, and leadership in the field of emergency preparedness and response. The United Nations has even defined the topic of emergency and disaster management a global "flagship issue."


The Master of Disaster Management is designed to build and develop a generation of leadership in this vital field, which directly affects the capacity to save lives, reduce risks to the environment and maintain an adequate quality of life. Graduates of the program will be able to integrate and influence both the policy and decision-making processes of authorities and first responder bodies, and contribute to research activities designed to deepen insights and build evidence-based knowledge.


We would be delighted to have you onboard the most challenging and leading Master's degree program in the field of emergency and disaster management.


Join today tomorrow's leaders!
