“AUSTIN, Texas (USA) — The University of Texas at Austin will start a first-of-its-kind Master of Science in Identity Management and Security (MSIMS) program, welcoming its first class of students in the spring of 2016. The new MSIMS graduate degree is a result of collaboration between the university’s School of Information and the Center for Identity.
The MSIMS program is designed to educate a new generation of professionals capable of delivering the business practices, policy, communications and technology solutions to protect personal information in today’s global digital economy. The MSIMS program will prepare students to fill a growing demand to guarantee trusted transactions, combat identity theft and fraud, and protect privacy.
Graduates will benefit from a multidisciplinary approach. Faculty members from across the UT Austin campus — including the School of Information, the Cockrell School of Engineering, the McCombs School of Business, the Moody College of Communication and LBJ School of Public Affairs — will teach in the program.”
