Course content

In an increasingly digital world, the need for skilled Cyber Security professionals is skyrocketing, creating an ever-expanding skills gap in the job market.

Demand for the right personnel is dramatically outweighing supply – the current pandemic is shifting more and more businesses online with many workers going remote, creating more and more potential targets for cybercriminals. The need for talented Cyber Security staff to manage and mitigate looming cyberthreats has never been greater.Cybercriminals don’t discriminate; they go wherever the money is – which means targeting companies of all sizes. Managers industry-wide will benefit from the extensive knowledge provided by our Online Executive MBA in Cyber Security.

Managers generally lack formal education in the fundamentals of technological Cyber Security, and many Cyber Security graduates will find themselves out of their depth when faced with managerial tasks. The Online Executive MBA in Cyber Security bridges that gap and fulfils the need for managers and Cyber Security professionals to have a grasp of both technological and managerial aspects of their roles.
