Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management will launch a new, 15-credit graduate cybersecurity certificate program in January 2012. The part-time, one-year program is geared toward business professionals who are seeking management-level certification and enhanced skills in cybersecurity and information assurance.

While the program will be offered part time on weekday evenings, coursework is offered in sequential order with a January start. In accordance with AACSB and Loyola academic policies, within three years of completion as many as 12 credits may be transferred into Loyola’s Professional MBA program as elective credits.

The program is the second graduate certificate the Sellinger School has added since introducing the full-time, accelerated Accounting Certificate program last year.

Applications for priority consideration to the program are due Nov. 1. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis thereafter as space permits for the January 2012 start. Interested applicants may visit the program page or begin an application online.
