Albuquerque, NM, April 18, 2018 /PRSubmissionSite/–Forerunners in online education, EC-Council University (ECCU) and Sabi University (SU) recently announced their association to create customized, fast-track, credit based dual-degree programs. These degree programs would be an exceptional asset to professionals looking to learn the finesse of a global management program and the intricacies of a highly technical subject such as Cybersecurity.
All existing and new enrolled students from SU will benefit from this dual degree program as they can acquire an Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) degree in cybersecurity. ECCU will accept credits from the EMBA degree program of SU and students will need only additional 21 credit hours from ECCU. Therefore, with 18 credit hours from SU’s EMBA and 21 from ECCU’s MSCS will provide the student a dual degree, which otherwise would require 72 credit hours from the 2 universities.
A transformational program
The unique MSc cybersecurity + MBA degree can promote educational and career opportunities for the students of SU and ECCU. The course has been designed in a unique style that allows for sanctity of credits. To provide a smooth curriculum transition for students, this course allows them to transfer from SU to ECCU, as well as, from ECCU to SU without the loss of credits or duplication of coursework.
Sanctity of Credits
In this association, SU and ECCU will be accepting one another’s credits for the Master of Science in Cyber Security (MSCS); and grant an EMBA or Executive Doctorate of Business Administration (EDBA) in Cybersecurity. Each university accepting the specialization courses in Management or Cybersecurity into each other’s programs as the core content in that discipline. The best part is that, the course structure for EMBA and EDBA in Cybersecurity resonates with the core academic strength of both ECCU and SU, directly satisfying requirements within the education coursework of the MSCS in Cyber Security degree offered by ECCU. A student gains the benefit of both SU’s global management and ECCU’s technical cybersecurity academic and applied expertise.
Usually it would take a student, 36 credit hours’ worth to secure the MSCS degree by ECCU. A student of the Joint EMBA- MSCS degree program however has the liberty to complete the MSCS courseware in 18 credits hours’ worth only! They can study courses of the EMBA program for 21 credits hours’ worth and now will have the privilege of attaining an EMBA in Cybersecurity, with 2 fully qualified Master’s degree programs under their belt! To put things in perspective, it takes 36 credit hours’ worth, to attain the SU EMBA program individually. So, in one scenario where a student would have to invest 36+36 = 72 credit hours’ worth in attaining 2 unique degrees, the joint EMBA in Cybersecurity offers the time-efficient option of attaining 2 world class degrees in 39 credit hours’ worth only! The flexibility in course selection allows for the candidate to choose from the allotted courses in any order, unless any one of them mandates a pre-requisite course.
An Accelerated Doctoral Program
With the offering of the EDBA program in Cybersecurity, students of cybersecurity from MSCS have an easy option to upgrade to a Management Doctorate Program in Cybersecurity.
For candidates with 5 years’ work experience and the full time MSCS program of 36 credits hours’ worth of education to their name, can experience a seamless transfer of credits to Sabi University for the EDBA program. This means that a candidate fulfilling such requirements will only need to put in 24 credit hours’ worth, to attain a Doctorate Degree!
Cybersecurity spending to exceed $1 trillion from 2017 to 2021.
According to the CSO Online Cybersecurity Business Report , Cyber-crime will more than triple the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs, which is predicted to reach 3.5 million by 2021. The same report predicts that the Global ransomware damage costs will exceed $5 billion in 2017.
These statistics point to the dire need of having management professionals understand cyber security as cyber security needs to be weaved into the business strategy of business.
As such, students of the joint EMBA-MSCS program have an even faster track laid out for them. With the 21 credit hours’ worth that a student gains from the MSCS Program in the Joint EMBA program, one can seamlessly make a transition to the EDBA program and have the 21 credits hours’ worth transferred. This implies that in just 39 more credits hours’ worth, the said candidate can gain a Doctorate Degree to their credit. How is that faster?
The minimum work experience required for the former case is only 3 years!
