Critical Infrastructure Protection and Management EMBA Degree

Critical Infrastructure Protection & Management

In partnership with George Mason University's Center for Infrastructure Protection and Homeland Security, our Critical Infrastructure Protection and Management Executive MBA program addresses the critical areas of risk analysis and management, systems analysis, and cyber security within critical infrastructure sectors such as

  • energy
  • telecommunications
  • water
  • transportation
  • medical response
  • finance
  • critical manufacturing

This Executive MBA track emphasizes business/government coordination to achieve business efficiency, ensure business continuity, and develop capacities to create resilience and competitive advantage.

You'll gain an essential critical infrastructure protection perspective by participating in multiple Washington, D.C., residencies. In these intensive sessions, you'll meet with federal/state/local government employees as well as industry executives to learn about contemporary infrastructure business issues and work in teams to craft solutions to address specific challenges.

During each of our EMBA program modules, you complete two to three courses in an applications-oriented sequence that takes you from developing core management skills through the understanding and application of the tools of business performance to the talents of leadership.
