The JMU College of Business has an academic partnership agreement with (ISC)² to provide official (ISC)² CISSP CBK training as part of the Information Security MBA program.This partnership incorporates CISSP content into the MBA program’s curriculum and prepare students to take an optional CISSP boot camp course and the CISSP exam. Some of the benefits of this partnership for JMU Information Security MBA students are:

  • Enhanced experience requirements for the CISSP® exam. CISSP® candidates are required to have 5 years of professional work experience in two or more of the ten domains of the (ISC)² CISSP CBK®. One year of work experience can be waived by obtaining the JMU Information Security MBA degree.
  • Official endorsement for the CISSP comes from a certified professor. Upon successfully graduating with the Information Security MBA, one of the program’s CISSP-certified faculty will be happy to endorse you.
  • Tuition for the optional CISSP boot camp course includes an exam voucher and student kit. The cost of the CISSP boot camp course is equivalent to the tuition of a regular Information Security MBA course. This is a significant savings over most other stand-alone CISSP boot-camps and prep-courses.
  • Having the MBA CISSP credential is a huge resume-booster. The CISSP is a globally recognized management-focused information security certification. There is tremendous demand in the market for people with these skill sets.
  • Credibility and flexibility. Having official (ISC)² CISSP CBK training from the JMU Infosec MBA program offers a great deal of credibility compared to most other institutions.
  • Official (ISC)² CISSP CBK training is provided by a certified instructor. Unlike some CISSP boot-camp or prep-course offerings, the required contact-hours of (ISC)² CISSP CBK training in the optional boot camp course are taught by a JMU professor who is a certified (ISC)² CISSP instructor.To read more about (ISC)², please visit the (ISC)² blog.

The official (ISC)² CISSP CBK training seminar for the CISSP is currently offered as an additional capstone course after students complete their MBA. This course is also open to JMU graduate students in other programs, MBA program alumni, or IT professionals.
