Organizational Risk and Cyber Security Management - BSBA

The Organizational Risk and Cyber Security Management Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree program is designed to provide graduates with strong management and risk management foundations in this rapidly growing field.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:

  • Apply the major concepts, skills and values of business administration.
  • Communicate effectively to diverse audiences, purposes and situations through a variety of professional methods within business administration.
  • Use decision-support tools to resolve contemporary business issues using ethical business practices.
  • Develop plans for risk recovery including communication protocols to react to natural disasters, foreign and domestic terrorism, cyber security breaches, and internal and external threats.
  • Analyze events, assess organizational readiness and develop counter-measures to maintain business continuity.

This program teaches organizational risk management as a necessary component of daily business operations. Students learn about the latest issues and concerns within the field while completing coursework in risk, business management, cyber security, law, accounting and human resource management.
