The Cybersecurity Programs in the College of Business are designed to offer students a real world Cybersecurity education taught by Cybersecurity professionals. Since 2003, the Cybersecurity program at UD has been recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) in Information Assurance / Cyber Defense by the National Security Agency (NSA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

One of the prime advantages of the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business at the University of Dallas is convenience for the working professional. Intermester classes held two evenings and Saturdays for 3-4 weeks are also an option. The Gupta College of Business uses a trimester system, with fall, spring and summer terms. With year-round classes and multiple starting points each term, students can choose from 12-week, 6-week, or intermester classes.

For international students it is a distinct advantage to attend class with current working professionals in the field where you aspire to work. The Cybersecurity program is part of the STEM-designated degree programs that qualify graduates for an optional practical training (OPT) extension of 17 months for a total of 29 months.
