Providing information security management solutions to enhance leadership success

Our MS in Management of Secure Information Systems program prepares cyber security and technology professionals to further their leadership careers within the cyber security, information security, and information systems arena of an organization. The program focuses on the technical aspects as well as the interrelationships of management and policy of secure information systems in a global and networked technology marketplace.

Our curriculum cultivates the development of real-world skills that translate into strategic leadership and decision-making expertise. You will expand your knowledge of business fundamentals and gain critical tools for securely managing information systems in any organization.

This is a cross-disciplinary cyber security management program offered in partnership by the the School of Business, Volgenau School of Engineering, and School of Policy, Government, and International Affairs. This program is different than the MS in Information Systems and the MS in Information Security and Assurance programs delivered solely by the Volgenau School of Engineering.
