According to the "GreatValueColleges" website, one of the things the program was ranked on was affordability. Another was it's staff.

"Our program was developed with an advisory counsel and faculty that consists of military intelligence professionals, civilian cyber security technologists, professional academic faculty." Said Travis Thul, Dean of trade and technology.

"We really have a great team that encompasses all the facets of professionalism, academia, law enforcement and military, which are really the primary domains of the cyber security world."
