The University of Texas at Tyler announced that its master of business administration in cyber security is among the best nationwide.

Independent entity OnlineMBAPage.com, an authority in collegiate rankings and resources for nationwide MBA online programs, recognized UT Tyler for its advanced online program with criteria including coursework development, faculty reputation, affordability and accreditation standards.

"This recognition is a testament to our efforts in creating challenging and innovative programs to help students become outstanding business leaders and meet the workforce demands of a growing industry," said Dr. Amir Mirmiran, UT Tyler provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Students learn management controls covering cryptographic protocols designed to make e-commerce safer; risk analysis that leads them to perform their own network security evaluations; and retail cyber security policies around disaster recovery and hardening of enterprise systems.

"We continue to attract forward-thinking business students, regionally and beyond, who recognize that information and network security will be one of the most important considerations for conducting business in the 21st century," said Dr. Roger Lirely, UT Tyler Soules College of Business interim dean.
