Cybersecurity (MBA)

Cybersecurity Degree Overview

The Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Cybersecurity is a new program that enables students with an interest in cybersecurity to gain an understanding of the value generated by technology, the need to defend those values, the need to protect individuals, businesses, not-for-profits, and government structures dependent upon this technology. Students will learn theory and practice of Cybersecurity, while also addressing ethics, privacy, cultural aspects, organizations, the law, and global considerations. In addition, the program maintains the MBA core to ensure a well-rounded understanding of the business enterprise.

“As a single mom of two small children that also works full time, I had to balance a lot while working on my master’s. The professors and admin staff at Thomas assist you with giving you the tools and flexibility you need to be successful, while also holding you accountable—which is also a huge tool that helps you be successful.”
