Tsunamis, earthquakes, droughts, floods, hurricanes, pollution, terror, oil spills, fires and pandemics often attract the media's attention. Fortunately, many of these hazards are relatively rare, but due to climate changes we are likely to experience a greater number of hazards and disaster situations in the future. 

This is why we need people who are trained in managing risks and emergencies on a national and international basis. The emergency and risk manager is proactive and plays an important role in preventing disaster situations, minimising damages and saving lives when disaster strikes. The emergency and risk manager takes care of safety and security in private and public organisations and is concerned with business continuity.

The Bachelor's Degree Programme in Emergency and Risk Management is developed in cooperation with the Danish Emergency Management Agency and Danish Red Cross. Both organisations focus on educating graduates who will make a difference. 

Societal security, risk assessment, emergency and contingency planning, prevention, response, coordination and management are keywords that describe the content of the programme. The programme’s 14 modules are a combination of theoretical and practical training, enabling students to achieve vast insight into what it means to work with emergency and risk management in a Danish or international context.
