Master of Science – ITACS

Masters of Science in IT Auditing and Cyber Security

Program Description

Our ITACS program attracts students from across the globe and employers seeking to hire our students in paid internships while they study and our graduates in full time jobs.  The ITACS program will prepare you for IT risk management, information systems auditing and cyber security in critical infrastructure sectors of the economy. This includes jobs in accounting and consulting firms, banks and financial companies, businesses producing goods and providing services; information and data service providers, computer software and hardware companies, governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations.

ITACS is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program that opens doors for our students to apply for scholarships, and entitles our international students to work in the U.S. for up to 29 months without sponsorship.  ITACS program’s alignment with ISACA’s Model Curriculum for Information System Audit and Control enables our graduates to earn one year work experience applicable towards CISA designation.

ITACS students take three common core courses, and specialized courses within one of two tracks.  Students deficient in technical background may also take a preparatory course. The IT Auditing track culminates in a capstone course leading to Certified Information System Auditor (CISA) certification, and the Cyber Security track leads to its capstone course and Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) certification – depending on your work experience.  Qualified students with necessary prerequisites are able to take courses from both tracks.  Details on the ITACS curriculum course descriptions are available here.
