D4rkw1ng Posted June 9, 2019 Share Posted June 9, 2019 Greeting everyone, I am hoping that someone(s) can help me with some questions. The first of all is my schooling. Last December I started classes at an onine university for cyber security. Although I have only been taking the required general education classes, I am about to start my core classes in Cyber Security. I am considering transfering to the following schools. EC Council University: They are under the umbrella of EC Council, which is one of the reason they looked very attractive. I have not seen them mentioned on top 10 schools, or anything like that. I have been told by other academic organization that they are nationally credited (not regionally). However they do offer certifications in "Certified Network Defender" , "Certified Ethical Hacker," and "Complete Hacking Forensic Investigator." Although these certifications would be great to have, I don't want them to be the only reason I attend their school. This school is an online only school, and does not offer on-campus classes. University of Arizona (or Dakota State University): Both these schools claim they are NSA Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations. These schools offer both online and on-campus classes. My biggest question is is this designator better than a degree at a non-designated school? Does anyone take this as a sign of a better potential employee? I am a veteran and looking towards a position within the government, but I am also open to joining a firm with the best benefits package and financial compensation. Thank you for any help you can provide. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
