1 James Madison University Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education Presents The Information Security MBA

2 Information technology is changing the business environment Our civilization is undergoing fundamental transformations; how humans communicate, how goods and currency are exchanged, our perception of time - everything is changing. The root cause behind all these changes is information technology. Executives have the enormous challenge of leading organizations through this era. As ever, they need to lead people, think strategically, manage resources and communicate clearly. But now that information technology has permeated every aspect of business, they need new skills and new vision. And they need to understand how to protect the integrity of their transformed operations. Why an Information Security MBA? Until now the infosec expertise gap among management has never been addressed by higher education. But by combining the Information Security expertise of the College of Integrated Science and Technology (CISAT) with JMU's highly rated College of Business (AACSB accredited), this unprecedented graduate degree will help to create a new manager who understands the business implications of information security. The MBA program at JMU is rated as one of the top 20 business schools offering on-line education by U.S. News and World Report. Program Objective The INFOSEC MBA focuses on managerial decision-making, analytical problem solving, oral and written communication and application of theoretical constructs all set in an INFOSEC framework. Graduates of this program will understand preservation of information confidentiality and protection, risk management, data and system integrity, availability, authenticity and utility all set against a strategic business background. Cohort Sequencing The MBA InfoSec program started in August 2000 in D.C. with a cohort group of 16 students. The next cohort started April 20, 2002 with 27 students. The third cohort started April 26, 2003 with 23 students. The fourth MBA InfoSec cohort started April 30, 2004 with 20 students. Cohort 5 started April 29, 2005 with 23 students. Cohort 6 started Dec 9, 2005 with 19 students. Cohort 7 started April 28, 2006 with 22 students. Cohort 8 is scheduled to start April 27, 2007 in D.C.. Cohort 1 (West Coast) is scheduled to start in Los Angeles, California August 24, Each cohort group will move through the 14 sequenced courses together during a 27- month period. This will provide the students with a well-paced educational experience as well as a familiar peer group with which to discuss course topics and issues. Curriculum Information Security will permeate every course regardless of the topic area. For example, Organizational Behavior, Foundations of Marketing Management or Quantitative Methods will address some issues of information security as it relates to that specific discipline. During the 14-course curriculum, four courses are solely dedicated to pure information security. Additionally, each of the 14 courses has a student deliverable James Madison University 2
