Concentration in Cyber Security
The Graduate Concentration in Cyber Security provides graduate students within the Hankamer School of Business exposure to ‘best practice’ concepts, techniques and methodologies critical to insuring data security in corporate/organizational environments. Furthermore, it is targeted towards addressing recent calls from the academic literature and professional journals to treat cyber security as a strategic organizational function rather than a back-office technical function. The purpose of the Concentration is to provide business graduate students with the necessary skills to develop and/or manage organizational processes, strategies, methodologies, and technologies designed to mitigate risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of organizational data and information-related resources for preparation to take cyber-security related management positions in industry and/or consulting practices.
Admission into the concentration is contingent upon admission into the MBA, MSIS, MAcc, MTax, or MSEco programs.
