Master of Science in Cybersecurity Management

Become a Cybersecurity Leader with 100% ONLINE degree!!

Cybercrime is on the rise, whether it be the compromise of information systems, employees leaking sensitive data, global organized crime creating large-scale fraud, or nation-states and other actors disseminating disinformation in an effort to destabilize governments. Never before has the threat landscape been so diverse, sophisticated, and aggressive.

Cybersecurity is a management problem, as security controls must be implemented in every department or business unit in an organization.

The security risks posed by people, and inherent in processes and technology must all be managed with controls in policies and procedures, as well as technological responses.

For this reason, the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah is uniquely positioned to teach both technical and leadership skills to students looking to enter this new and rapidly changing field.

Our graduates are positioned to obtain excellent employment positions and have longer-term career advancement opportunities.

No technical background or GMAT score needed to apply

MSCM students come from a variety of backgrounds, and historically up to 50 percent of students do not have a technical background.

The MSCM curriculum is adaptive to both experienced and novice students. Faculty are adept at creating a challenging classroom environment for experienced students while at the same time ensuring a supportive and flexible experience for those new to information systems.

Students who are new to IS are encouraged to seek out additional study resources, such as working with a study group, meeting with professors outside of class, completing additional self-study, working with a tutor or following a Massive Open Online Course in addition to the MSCM class requirements.
