Quinlan graduate students have the unique opportunity to earn a certificate in cybersecurity from the University of Dallas (UD) Gupta College of Business, a nationally recognized leader in the field.

Graduates from UD’s cybersecurity programs are some of the most sought-after cybersecurity professionals in the nation.

Due to a growing dependency on information security, businesses are hiring more cybersecurity professionals. A recent report by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics found that jobs for information security analysts will continue to rise, with an expected increase of 28% percent from 2016 to 2026 with median salaries exceeding $90,000.

Cybersecurity studies also can lead to careers in areas such as threat analysis, cyber defense, network security, penetration testing, and digital forensics.
