GW’s World Executive MBA (WEMBA) students specializing in cybersecurity wrapped up their first international residency in Estonia last month.
Senior officials in the capital of Tallinn – including Estonia’s President Toomas Ilves – met with the group of 18 students to share insights, observations and research in the cybersecurity field.
The trip was the first of its kind for the WEMBA cybersecurity program, a 16-month degree program offered jointly by GWSB and GW’s Cyber Center for National and Economic Security (CCNES).
The international residency in Tallinn – which is home to NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence – is expected to be offered annually. The center was established in Tallinn after Estonia was targeted by cyberattacks in 2007.
The WEMBA in cybersecurity is aimed at both public and private sector professionals who want to improve their ability to quickly respond to and defeat cyber threats to global business.
