TROY, Mich., March 3, 2021 — Walsh has introduced a Cybersecurity Master of Business Administration (Cyber MBA), the first integrative program of its kind in Michigan, combining key components of Walsh’s Master of Science in Information Technology Leadership and internationally ranked MBA. The Cyber MBA is designed to create business leaders who know how to align vision, strategy and resources with mature processes to generate business success, including cybersecurity. The Cyber MBA can be completed entirely online in as little as one year and is available beginning in the spring semester on March 30, 2021. 

“Cyber risk mitigation is where businesses and leaders most frequently fail. Walsh’s Cyber MBA is designed to develop leaders who understand how to align cyber initiatives with an organization’s vision, strategy and resources to enable business success in an evolving world,” said Dave Schippers, DSc, CISSP, chair and assistant professor, IT/Decision Sciences. 

Walsh was one of the first schools in Michigan to be recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD).
