The Master of Business Administration - Cybersecurity degree program is a graduate professional program that emphasizes the breadth of preparation in various disciplines required for business alongside a depth of knowledge in the Cybersecurity domain. The degree may be completed in two years or less and provides the high-level knowledge and range of skills to meet the challenges of today’s enterprise security needs. Students will gain valuable knowledge in risk management, security operations management, evaluating security threats, and managing a business focused on cybersecurity services. Rooted in the case method approach, this intensive MBA program offers a uniquely collaborative, hands-on education.
The applicant to the master of business administration program must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Applicants who are graduates of non-business programs are also encouraged to apply. An applicant is assigned an advisor soon after acceptance into the MBA program, and should meet with the advisor to prepare a program plan outlining the courses needed for the MBA degree.
The admissions decision is based on a review of the application documentation including work experience, academic performance, references and written statement of purpose. Although taking the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a requirement, it is highly recommended for admission consideration. Individuals who take the GMAT and obtain a satisfactory score can compensate for other criteria in their application (such as academic performance or work experience). Preference for graduate scholarships will be given to applicants who take the GMAT.
The two-course sequence Essentials of Business Development 1 and 2 (BUS 5601 and BUS 5602) culminates in a fully integrated business plan.

Students actively engage in case study analysis and exercise leadership and teamwork skills. In addition to the core business fundamentals, you’ll gain specialized skills in strategic information technology and management. The program combines academic principles and practical, realworld applications to result in a solid business foundation.
