The Executive Management of Secure Information Systems MS, a multidisciplinary program offered by the Volgenau School of Engineering, the School of Business, and the Schar School of Policy and Government prepares professionals for the challenges of modern computerized information systems that have become increasingly complex and vulnerable to cyber-attacks, resulting in a significant number of government regulations. Consequently, those responsible for the safe, secure, and efficient operation of such systems need to grasp their technical aspects and be familiar with both the principles of management and the public policy impact of regulatory and organizational decisions.
The program is run as a cohort with no electives. The entire program has a duration of 16 months including about seven days of study abroad, which is included in the tuition.
All students must have graduate standing. Non-degree student status is not available.
