The business continuity graduate certificate provides students an in-depth overview of those processes required to build resilience and provide for disaster recovery within both public and private entities. Planning and preparing for the adverse effects of a major crisis brought on by natural disasters, cyber threats and even common emergencies are key to the survival of an organization post-event. Business continuity is an important component in having a successful business, and as such, many organizations are adapting their employee’s roles to include continuity components. This certificate will help students understand those components, teach them how to develop a plan, and cover best practices to survive and thrive despite a crisis or disaster. This knowledge, in turn, better prepares employees and businesses for any business disruption that may occur.
