Booz Allen Hamilton today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with University of Maryland University College to offer students three online graduate certificates in cybersecurity.

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.

All three certificates have a different focus, including foundations of cybersecurity, cybersecurity policy, and cybersecurity technology.

Available today to Booz Allen employees who are graduate-level students interested in boosting their cybersecurity knowledge, these courses will be offered to the general public next spring.

“Our nation“™s ability to successfully protect our critical infrastructure and information systems from attacks hinges on a trained, ready cyber workforce,“ said 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.“

UMUC President Dr. Susan C. Aldridge said the university’s mission is to offer top-quality educational programs that serve working adults while responding to the workforce needs of the state, nation and world.

“UMUC“™s partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton is a testament to that mission, providing employees with graduate-level training to address the needs of the company“™s clients and our nation in negotiating the rapidly changing field of cyber warfare, combating cyber crime and much more,“ she added.
