MAS in Humanitarian Leadership

The joint study program CAS/MAS in Humanitarian Leadership connects academic skills and knowledge, delivered by the University of Lucerne, with the practical know-how and experience of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
 
Providing support to people affected by conflicts and disasters is characterised as being an intense, challenging, and multi-faceted task. Typically, providing humanitarian assistance is associated with a set of aspects including:

This variety of factors requires strong strategic, operational, and leadership skills for managerial and field personnel. Leadership skills are particularly important, since human interaction is the basis of any humanitarian response.

In view of these challenges and opportunities, the study programme "MAS in Humanitarian Leadership" is designed to develop the competencies of humanitarian leaders and managers. Furthermore, the programme helps leaders and managers that humanitarian services become more effective and reach the people who are affected by conflicts and disasters.
