About the course
This course is delivered via Blended Learning and students will be required to occasionally attend the Coventry Campus. Please contact us for further advice in regard to short term study visas if required.
This qualification has been developed in direct response to the need for government and industry to increase cyber management knowledge and expertise in the workplace.
WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
The MBA in Cyber Security (MBACS) aims to provide an educational experience which enables individuals to achieve an integrated understanding of the operation and strategy of management and to develop appropriate intellectual and personal skills.
The MBACS will enable individuals to understand complex business problems and key issues in cyber security whilst exploring many associated business issues such as globalisation and ethics to ensure successful global trade.
There is an exciting opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge gained in the MBACS to business. This can be achieved by undertaking an appropriate individual or group research project based on a real cyber security issue at the dissertation stage.
The MBACS is designed to explicitly cultivate the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfil the gap in the workforce.
The first of its kind, the MBACS is structured so that you are exposed to a common core of key management issues within the fields of Strategy, Finance and Accounting, Human Resource Management and Marketing.
As distinct from MSc courses in this field, the MBACS aims to provide individuals with the skills to become effective managers by making informed decisions around cyber security risk management issues. The course provides a number of specialist modules that allows the individual to tailor their own pathway to complement and build on their existing knowledge.
