goals

This Master's degree from UCM and UPM aims to provide global training in disaster and emergency management. The frame of reference considers the set of decisions, both political and administrative, and operational interventions carried out in the different stages of a disaster: prevention and mitigation (including risk analysis), preparedness, response and recovery.

It is aimed at training managers with a global vision of the processes that lead to a disaster and the reaction to it, with information management for decision-making being a central axis in training.

The Master's Degree in Disaster Management is included in the International Postgraduate School of the Moncloa International Campus of Excellence, where the teaching will be fully taught.

Disasters have gone from being local in nature to being understood globally in society. The analysis and reduction of disaster risk, increasing resilience, emergency response and security actions are increasingly demanded activities in a global society.
