The London Met MBA (Cyber Security) gives you the opportunity to develop your understanding of key business functions as well as focus on cyber security. In our data'centric world that faces increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks on both national governments and international corporations, this is a growing sector.

The modules on this course are related to accounting, marketing, leadership and other vital managerial functions within companies and organisations. They are designed to help you evolve into a successful leader in the business world.

The cyber security modules will cover the fundamentals of leadership and risk management within cyber security organisations. It is important you learn about how to anticipate, deter, detect and resist cyber attacks on digital assets and activities, so we'll introduce you to the specific challenges faced by all organisations, including identity theft, scams, fraud and attacks on computer systems.
