Cyber-Security Management Certificate

The University of Dayton's Masters in Business Administration (MBA) program and the Riverside Research are offering students the unique opportunity to take a three-course sequence in cyber security management, resulting in a certificate or MBA concentration. This credential qualifies students to support the government and industry through addressing domain specific requirements and preparing candidates for three highly sought after DoD 8570 Certifications: (ISC)2 Certification & Accreditation Professional (CAP), CompTIA's Network+ and Security+. In one year, qualified students are able to obtain three DoD 8570 certifications and complete approximately one third of the course requirements toward their MBA.

Individuals interested in the new cyber security management classes must be eligible for U.S. government security clearance.  Qualified students may opt to participate in only one or two of the courses, based on availability. Please note that there is a $750 fee for two of the courses in this sequence.
