Booz Allen Teams with UMUC for Cyber Degrees

Booz Allen Hamilton has partnered with University of Maryland University College (UMUC) to offer graduate certificates in cybersecurity.

The program will make use of  Booz Allen’s knowledge of emerging cybersecurity needs with UMUC’s education skills to build a more cyber-literate workforce.

Offered through UMUC’s web-based learning technology, course credits are applicable to the university’s full Master of Science in Cybersecurity or Master of Science in Cybersecurity Policy.

The courses are currently open to Booz Allen employees and will become available to the general public in the spring 2011 semester.

“Our nation’s ability to successfully protect our critical infrastructure and information systems from attacks hinges on a trained, ready cyber workforce, ” said J. Michael (Mike) McConnell, executive vice president at Booz Allen. “At a time when the public and private sector gaps in cyber professionals are cavernous, we are pleased to partner with UMUC to deliver a program aimed at fortifying this workforce.”
