One of the main reasons I pursued a masters degree at UD was that it’s an NSA Center of Excellence, offering one of the best programs in the country. Additionally, a graduate program in Cybersecurity from a reputable business school not only equipped me with the technological and know-how of the industry, but also offered substantial insights on how cybersecurity businesses are evolving.
For my internship I took the role of a Project-based Security Analyst Intern Role with an NJ based consulting company. The internship was one of the most significant experiences, as it helped me apply what I learned at school in a professional and practical manner.
My favorite part at the University of Dallas was the core value of “Experiential Learning”. When I look back at when I started the program and upon completion, the experiences UD offered, in terms of class-room learning, social and professional events, being part of high-achieving sororities, really helped me grow on a personal and professional level.
