Leadership and management skills that go beyond programming.
As one of the top programs in the nation, the University of Dallas cybersecurity program
has been recognized for 14 consecutive years as a National Center of Academic Excellence
in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and the U.S. Department
of Homeland Security.
The content and structure of the program is based on the real-world expertise of the
cyber advisory council and faculty. All of the college’s cybersecurity professors have seen great success
in academia and strive to make their classroom experiences enriching, both online
and on campus. This, combined with the their decades of real world cybersecurity experience,
keeps the curriculum engaging and focused on today’s most important cybersecurity concerns.
Our MBA and M.S. in cybersecurity programs provide students with an in-depth understanding
of the complexities in protecting and defending infrastructures with an emphasis on
leadership, management and the ethical issues that government and corporations experience.
Both the MBA and M.S. in cybersecurity can be completed 100% online, on-campus or
a combination of both—making the UD cybersecurity program an excellent choice for
the working professional.
I am happy to answer any questions and I look forward to discussing the UD cybersecurity
program with you.
