Cybersecurity Management Program

The M.S. in Cybersecurity Management at Avila

This program is a flexible program incorporating both online courses as well as in-person coursework. This program is also part of our Hybrid programs as well.

The MS in Cybersecurity Management program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to manage and secure information systems in a variety of settings, including corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations.

The program combines technical and managerial coursework, emphasizing the integration of cybersecurity with business strategy, innovation, ethics, leadership, and project management.

We are excited to announce that coming soon, Fall 2024, Avila University will offer an Undergraduate program in Cybersecurity! More information should be available this Spring!
