Information security is a quickly growing field. A variety of organizations are interested in professionals who have advanced degrees specializing in information security. Career opportunities exist within government agencies, large scale companies, financial organizations, as well as consulting firms.
MBA students at CCU have an option to pursue one of several information security emphases, in conjunction with the University of Fairfax. Unlike MBA degree programs that look at subjects through an intellectual lens only, CCU’s Information Security MBA program will challenge you to explore moral questions as well.
For example, when organizations collect personal information about their constituents, they have business reasons for doing so – from protecting trade secrets to fulfilling fiduciary responsibilities. But there’s also a Biblical imperative to consider. The Golden Rule that Jesus Christ taught compels organizations to care for other people’s property, reputations, privacy, etc., as they would their own.
Through CCU’s MBA in Information Security program, you’ll be challenged to think spiritually, as well as intellectually. Whether you’re entering a career in information security for the first time or you’re strengthening your existing skills, you’ll explore how you can serve a larger cause.
An MBA degree with an information security emphasis is often a great fit for:
Students pursuing an information security emphasis (InfoSec) acquire the expertise needed to ensure an enterprise's information security. InfoSec focus areas range from planning and analysis, to risk management and compliance, to security.
CCU’s Master of Business Administration students take their core business administration courses through CCU. These courses may be taken in-person one evening per week or online, so students have maximum flexibility.
The InfoSec courses are available online through the University of Fairfax. CCU students are able to transfer their University of Fairfax credits within certain guidelines. For terms and conditions on transferring credits, please review the CCU-Fairfax Articulation Agreement (PDF).
Many of the InfoSec emphases are highlighted below. For details, please review the University of Fairfax Curriculum Overview (PDF).
