Business Administration, Cybersecurity Concentration, B.S. (120 Credits)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The Cybersecurity concentration of Business Administration is designed to provide students with a strong business foundation in management, marketing, economics and finance/accounting. As part of the Cybersecurity concentration area, students will assess modern cybersecurity challenges that threaten our privacy, security, and safety, and gain both the knowledge and hands-on technical skills to protect digital assets from cyber criminals who leverage sophisticated social and cyber tactics to facilitate attacks.

Furthermore, as the cyber attack surface continues to expand via the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, it is increasingly vital that students learn how to “harden” networks, systems, and endpoint devices against cyber attacks, topics which are covered in the course Modern Cybersecurity.

It is, however, impossible to create a perfectly secure system, so students will also learn how to perform cyber forensics to investigate, collect, and preserve digital evidence associated with a breach.

Finally, students will learn how to think like a “hacker” and use industry standard tools to find weaknesses in systems.

Program Goals:

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, students will:

  • demonstrate an ability to conduct relevant research in their field of business and/or their concentration.
  • exhibit mastery of basic business knowledge, concepts, and terminology in the specific areas of marketing, management, accounting, and finance.
  • demonstrate knowledge and skills required to obtain employment in their field.
  • develop the skills necessary to succeed in their fields including leadership abilities and a heightened sense of social responsibility and ethics.
