Advances in information technologies, the globalization of markets, and increasing rates of technological change shape the competitive dynamics in many industries. The management of knowledge and information is a critical source of competitive advantage for firms. To sustain success, firms must protect their information and knowledge-based resources. Thus, the information security M.B.A. program is designed to provide students with a sound foundation in all of the business principles, while also ensuring they have a strong understanding of the business implications of information security. The program is primarily intended for working professionals holding full-time positions. While this program is primarily an online program utilizing synchronous and asynchronous techniques, students meet with faculty once every eight weeks on a Saturday in Reston, Virginia, near Washington Dulles International Airport. The curriculum of the information security M.B.A. program includes 42 total credit hours.
