Masters of Science in IT Auditing and Cyber Security
The marketplace for knowledgeable staff in the areas of IT risk, assurance and cyber security is growing rapidly at accounting firms, multinational corporations, consultancies and government organizations. The ITACS program prepares students for careers in either IT auditing or cyber security.
The ITACS program is growing and offering excellent job opportunities. We are very pleased with our students’ achievements: 100% job placement and over an 80% pass rate on their first attempt at the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) examination. This year, twenty-five percent of our graduates placed in the top 10% globally of all CISA exam takers. We are attracting employers from all over the US and students from all over the world.
We have two tracks, both based on a common core of five courses. The IT Auditing track leads toward the CISA certification. The Cyber Security track leads to either the SSCP or CISSP depending on your work experience. Both IT auditors and security professionals are in high demand now and for the foreseeable future. Our program will prepare you a career in either field.
ITACS is a STEM program and the IT Audit track is ISACA aligned. Being a STEM program opens doors for our students to apply for scholarships and entitles international students to work in the US for up to 29 months without sponsorship. Being ISACA aligned means that our program counts as one year of experience toward the CISA certification.
