Vista College Announces New Online Diploma Program for Business

On Wednesday, officials with Vista College announced a new Online Diploma Program in Business Administration and Leadership.

Our new Business Administration and Leadership curriculum is evidence-based.  Assessments are used to demonstrate to employers that our graduates are prepared and employable,” said Vista College’s Online Director Dr. Art Waller.  “The program is designed to support meaningful learning.  Through assessments, students can demonstrate what they know and can do. After graduation, our graduates will be able to demonstrate with evidence that they are prepared for entry-level management positions.”

Enrollment has begun immediately for Vista’s newest online diploma program.

Officials added, “Vista College’s new Online Diploma program in Business Administration and Leadership provides students with a comprehensive platform from which to build a career in service, retail, and other general business sectors.”

The Business Administration and Leadership program covers four fundamental disciplines: leadership, marketing, strategy and finance. Each course provides students with management and leadership skills to apply in the real world for maximum impact.

Throughout the program, students can demonstrate their mastery of topics by earning digital competency badges in management, communication, and leadership through individual assessments and application projects. Upon completion of the program, a diploma is awarded.

Graduates will gain knowledge in the following upon graduation: accounting practices, management, leadership principles, small business management, business math, human resource management, marketing principles, computer applications, professional strategies, business communication and career strategies.

Vista College to Offer New Associate Degree in Information Systems Security and Assurance

Vista College’s El Paso campus is offering a new Associate Degree in Information Systems Security and Assurance (ISSA) which provides a convenient educational program for students wanting to enter a hot field facing a global shortage.

What we know to be true is that most organizations do not have the people or systems to monitor their networks consistently and to determine how they are being infiltrated,” said Vista College’s Campus Director Tony Rico. “CISCO’s report estimates there are more than 1 million unfilled security jobs worldwide.  Vista College is now a go-to source to attain the training needed for this industry.”

According to CISCO’s 2015 Annual Security Support, the sophistication of the technology and tactics used by criminals has outpaced the ability of IT and security professionals to address these threats. Enrollment has begun for Vista’s newest associates degree with the first classes beginning July 31.

Areas of study within the ISSA degree include information systems, networks and communications, risk management and recovery, access controls, monitoring and analysis, malicious code and activity, and security operations and administration.

Skills taught in the program include basic analysis of networks and security domains, risk assessment and disaster recovery strategies, legal analysis of security issues, ethical hacking and counter measures, and systems forensics and incident response.

Graduates of this program are prepared to seek employment in entry-level positions in the information systems security and cyber security branches of any organization. Potential positions could include systems security specialist, systems security administrator, junior systems security engineer, junior cyber security engineer, or any IT network systems positions bearing security responsibilities.

According to the U.S. Bureau of abor Statistics, employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for information security analysts is expected to be very high, as these analysts will be needed to create innovative solutions to prevent hackers from stealing critical information or causing problems for computer networks.

“Public and private sector organizations need cybersecurity professionals to cope with the future’s security challenges,” added Rico.  “These positions play a critical role in defending against viruses, spamming, malware, phishing and information security threats. Potential employers include government agencies, military contractors, IT services companies, the armed forces, professional services firms, financial institutions and cybersecurity consulting firms.”

Vista College offers a wide variety of career training programs throughout Texas, New Mexico, and Arkansas.
