MSc in Occupational Health and Safety Management- Advanced Entry Program

Organizations in the public and commercial sectors throughout the world are becoming more and more concerned with enhancing occupational health and safety. The persistence of hazardous or unsafe working conditions has drawn attention to the need to establish safe and healthy working environments and advance a new safety culture in the workplace in both developed and developing nations due to the rapid pace of technological change.

The goal of the MSc in Occupational Health and Safety Management program is to improve the participants’ current comprehension and application of occupational health and safety management by empowering them to develop a more comprehensive strategy for influencing employee and organizational performance through the modern concepts of worker engagement and wellbeing.

Information of the Program and its Execution

The Advanced Entry route program is a good alternative for those who are serious about advancing their careers in upper-level management, since it requires them to complete the Research Methods module and a Consultancy Project Report on a topic of their choosing.

Strategy for Research- Including the Proposal for Future Study.

The webinars on “Induction” and “Research Methods,” which come at the beginning of the program, provide you the opportunity to complete the proposal you’ve been working upon in your research.

The Consulting Report

The Consultancy Project Report gives students an opportunity to research a specific area of interest inside a company. The goal of this module is to improve students’ professional and intellectual growth by giving them opportunities to demonstrate persistent independent thought, learning, and critical reflection.

Through theoretical and conceptual research, this program addresses a problem with the company’s strategic planning. The final product of the student consultancy is a report.

Completing the Advanced Entry route program with the help of your assigned supervisor for the final Consultancy Project Report module should take between 6 and 9 months.
