SAN ANTONIO, June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has announced that it will extend the application deadline for its groundbreaking new fully online degree program in cyber security to July 9, to accommodate the high level of interest from potential students that the program has generated. The program will begin in the fall of 2017 and allow students to earn a B.B.A. in cyber security entirely through distance learning.
UTSA's cyber security programs were ranked No. 1 in the nation by the independent and highly regarded Ponemon Institute based on a survey of IT executives. UTSA's academic and research programs have been long recognized as a pioneer in the field due to top ranked faculty and academic expertise in digital forensics, secure design, and detection. Students learn from experts while earning valuable industry-aligned certificates that highlight the acquisition of skills.
Because the program is 100% online, students can work at their own pace, personalizing the experience to fit their schedule, while having access to the same vast cyber security expertise that UTSA students currently experience on-campus. They may also receive credit for past education, thereby shortening the time to completion so they can may more quickly begin or advance their career in cyber security.
With an estimated 1 million unfilled cyber security jobs worldwide, according to a 2014 Cisco Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, this incredible demand gives students a myriad of opportunities to pursue their specific passion within the cyber security arena.
Graduates of UTSA cyber security programs go on to work at security firms as well as government agencies like the NSA, CIA and FBI and for major business corporations such as USAA, Rackspace and H-E-B.
