MCS AT AIM
The Master in Cybersecurity (MCS) program seeks to develop graduates into professionals who can ethically oversee and govern the cybersecurity programs in an organization. The program includes business courses to allow cybersecurity professionals to align the business priorities while managing the cybersecurity threats. The curriculum was developed to address a growing need to manage cybersecurity threats as firms adopt new technologies and restructure the workplace, and was modeled after international standards for developing cybersecurity programs while keeping the tradition of a strong practitioner-oriented focus.
The Master in Cybersecurity enables graduates to become information security professionals and experts in information security detection and prevention. This program opens its doors to both non-technical managers who need the added technical knowledge, and technical managers who need to build their organizational management capabilities, to empower them to properly steer their teams in the face of cyberattacks and related risks.
The Master in Cybersecurity is an 18-month part-time, hybrid degree program. Classes are held every Friday night from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Applicants may opt to take the classes on campus or online via zoom. The flexible, hybrid curriculum makes it possible for working professionals to pursue a graduate degree amid other commitments.
