Master of Disaster Management

Experience from recent major disasters, changes in the humanitarian field, the changing nature of conflict, and climate change impact all have made it clear that a holistic approach to disasters and crisis management is needed to substantially reduce losses and deal with new challenges the current system seems ill equipped to respond to.

Our ten year long Master of Disaster Management (MDMa) program takes an inter-disciplinary and intersectoral approach to understand and unpack the complexities and uncertainties associated with disasters. In particular, the program builds on taking a risk reduction perspective.

The MDMa program brings a perfect balance of theory and practice. The program is informed by our research at the Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research, as well as from experts from the field brought in as guest lecturers.

Here is your gateway to a career in the humanitarian/disaster risk reduction sector!
