Designed to provide the tools and concepts necessary to plan for, prevent, and-when needed-successfully respond to disruptions in business operations, the Master of Science in Business Continuity, Security and Risk Management program provides a review of important issues relating to business continuity, security, information and materials management, as well as risk management from a planning, operations, and response perspective. Topics presented include incident response and disaster recovery, compliance, and system-wide risk analysis. Business continuity is viewed organizationally to include all company operations (information, computer systems, infrastructure, personnel, and supply chain), as well as emergencies emanating from man-made and natural disasters. Online and Boston-based graduate students can participate in a variety of international study experiences through the Administrative Sciences department. These include obtaining a second degree from a foreign partner institution (dual degree program); taking a partner institution’s online course (for our online students); participating in one of the department’s intensive courses abroad; or attending a foreign university. Dual degree students (both campus-based and online) are able to earn a second degree from a foreign university with a reduction in that school’s graduation requirements; in most cases, a student can obtain an MS in Business Continuity, Security and Risk Management from Metropolitan College and an MBA from a foreign institution in two years of full-time study (with classes in English). The department strongly believes that international opportunities are a vital part of today’s business education, and strives to make opportunities available to our students whether part-time, full-time, or online. MET partner institutions are located in a variety of countries, including England, France, Germany, Mexico, and Taipei. Information about a range of international opportunities is available from the department or, for online students, the online program coordinator.
