Online Cybersecurity and Cloud Computing Master’s Degrees


Engage with the latest thinking in cybersecurity and cloud computing by taking courses from world-class faculty with industry-leading experience.

The methods in which organizations approach information security and technology have changed dramatically over the last decade. Organizations who once fostered the overwhelming majority of their data and applications within their own data centers, have now shifted much of that information to the cloud, allowing for unprecedented scalability and agility.

At the same time, cybersecurity threats have become far more sophisticated with the rise of complex malware, advanced persistent threats and increased availability of exploit kits. As a result of these challenges, employers need professional leadership with well-rounded expertise and proficiency regarding the technical aspects of cybersecurity and cloud computing. Accompanied by this mechanical expertise, the desire for management and business process knowledge to guide organizational change is in high demand.

The George Washington University has developed two online cybersecurity master’s degrees as well as an online master’s degree in cloud computing management to prepare graduates for addressing these issues from different, but equally important, angles.
