Designing a Masters Program in Cyber Security and Leadership

  • The Master of Cybersecurity and Leadership (MCL) taught at the University of Washington Tacoma is a partnership between the Institute of Technology and the Milgard School of Business. The 10-course graduate level program was initially benchmarked against existing masters programs, surveys of prospective student population were conducted, and an assessment was done on the estimated demand for MCL graduates in the region. The program outcomes were then mapped against the course objectives to insure the correct mix of courses and topics. The program’s admission requirements and schedule were then tailored to our
    expected pool of applicants. The MCL program is proposed to start in January 2013.

    This paper discusses the design process and possible ways to reduce risk in the start-up of a new degree program. How a program is marketed to prospective students and what program graduates will do after program completion is just as important as the initial design of the program. Planning for the administration of the program and the assessment process is an important phase of the initial design.
