A new Executive Certificate – International Crisis Management has been launched by LEIDAR and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies. Starting in November 2012 and ending in March 2013, this new programme will be organized around three modules of three to five days each. The Executive Certificate will address the three key areas of crisis management: crisis and stakeholder mapping, risk assessment and crisis navigation.
The course is intended for professionals working in both public institutions and private sector companies, whether in the communications, government relations, advocacy, operations or human resources disciplines. The content of the programme will balance academic tuition with the acquisition of practical skills and tools, and include the participation of high-level external guest speakers. Programme features include:
– A strong focus on mapping the various potential crises an organization can face, ranging from natural disasters, organizational mismanagement to armed conflicts
– A 360° approach to crisis mitigation – from risk assessment to crisis resolution
– Real-life practical crisis exercises
– Guest speakers from a variety of prominent organisations
