Brown University has announced that the first 28 students of its new Executive Master in Cybersecurity program have arrived on campus to begin their coursework.

"With unique education and experience, every student is an important contributor to the cohort," Program Director Alan Usas said. "Not only do the students act as valuable resources for peers, but they become trusted members of a lifelong professional network that forms. We have a very strong group entering the program, and we are prepared to graduate visionary and strategic leaders to meet the global, technical, human and policy challenges of cybersecurity.”

Students convened to walk through the Van Wickle Gates and across the Front Green as part of the inaugural convocation ceremony on Oct. 16.

“I appreciate the mental space that this program is giving me from the day-to-day experience of my work,” Katie Jenkins, a student in the program, said. “The diverse perspectives from faculty and students are already influencing the way I think about my own security operation. This program will be critical in my organization’s effort to select new technologies and processes that address both current and evolving threats that we face and account for the human factors of adoption.”
