What students and graduates say about the program

  • I decided to study at Hellenic American University because of my ambition to be a Chief Information Security Officer. Information security has always fascinated me, but I realized that I was missing an understanding of the risks involved. I chose to do this particular program, since it’s known for its networking courses but also risk-based mind-set. The courses helped me develop a scientific approach to identify what really matters in questions of business. Also, the accessibility and openness of the teachers, and their ability to direct my focus are very valuable. All this helped me get a promotion from Support Technician to the Information Security Department of my company. My advice for working students who wish to start this program part-time is to not underestimate the time you need to invest in it next to your job. Accept that you’ll have little free time. The program is a step-by-step process that will boost your knowledge. Trust in that and take advantage of the amazing guidance the University offers you along the way.
