Public Management and Leadership - MS in Emergency Management

Return to: MS in Emergency Management  

The MS in Emergency Management program with a specialization in Public Management and Leadership focuses on the multidisciplinary issues of preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery in anticipating and rebuilding from disasters as they relate to public management. Students can study ways to coordinate and manage emergency situations, develop leadership skills for overseeing emergency programs, and explore the technical demands of emergency situations. Topics include managing situations that deal with the uncertainty, the nature and methods of transformative change, and leadership strategies for influencing and shaping public policy. Students have an opportunity to apply strategic scenarios to create organizational change for a public organization of their choice. The curriculum can also help prepare students to earn certificates from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute.
