[ISN] Information Security M.B.A.'s Teach Business Side of Cybersecurity

Convenience and credibility are what sold Henry Bromley III on James Madison University's M.B.A. program.

The Virginia-based mechanical engineer, husband, and father needed a reputable business school close to home that allowed him to balance work, family, and grad school. The program's emphasis on information security was little more than an interesting afterthought.

"I went in merely for the M.B.A.," Bromley says. "I wasn't so interested in information security â little did I know it would really boost my career."

Bromley landed a position with Booz Allen Hamilton, a government consulting firm, before finishing his Information Security M.B.A. in 2008. Now a senior information security engineer consulting for defense industry clients, Bromley's work is all cybersecurity, all the time, he says.

"This is the real deal. The kind of nuts and bolts on how we can protect our information," and what that information is worth, Bromley says. "I feel like I've stepped into the forefront of it."
