Why Choose Advanced Studies in Incident Response?

Responding to industry trends, Ferris State University's College of Business Graduate Programs has created graduate-level advanced studies certificates. These four course sequences can be used to obtain stand-alone certificates or as emphasis areas leading to master's degrees in either Information Security and Intelligence or a Master of Business Administration.

The Advanced Studies Certificate in Incident Response is designed to prepare individuals to secure computers, networks, and systems against intrusions and unauthorized access, test and assess security measures, and forensically analyze the environment to determine events and situations that may have occurred in a digital environment.

Admission Requirements

A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.

Graduation Requirements

No more than 50% of the credits in this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor, will this certificate be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are specifically required in the student's major.
