M.S. in Cybersecurity

Become a master at managing cybersecurity risk

Unlike similar programs which focus only on one or two areas related to cybersecurity, Indiana University’s M.S. in Cybersecurity Risk Management degree program explores how technology, business, and law intersect in the cybersecurity realm.

As a student in our program, you’ll take cybersecurity courses from three of IU’s top-ranked schools: the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering; the IU Kelley School of Business; and the Maurer School of Law.

Your holistic training will prepare you to:

  • Protect privacy and intellectual property
  • Promote information and systems security
  • Address cyber threats to national and international security

A flexible, customizable degree built for you

You can customize your program to your schedule. Enroll full time on campus or online, or take a hybrid approach with some online and some on-campus courses. You can complete your degree in as little as one year (as a hybrid program) or you can take up to five years to finish. It’s up to you.

After you’ve been accepted into the program, we’ll help you decide on your plan of study and what you’d like to focus on as you plan your degree path.

Experience plus impact

Gain real-world consulting experience doing a project that has the potential to change lives. Since 2013, IU cybersecurity students have found solutions for Indiana government agencies, local governments, and schools.
