ManTech and Kaplan University Partner to Drive Cybersecurity Learning Program

ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT) and regionally accredited Kaplan University have partnered to provide tailored cyber degree programs that prepare ManTech employees for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification and may be applied toward bachelor's and master's degrees in cybersecurity.

"ManTech's new education initiative builds on our strategy to attract and develop our nation's finest cyber talent to support our clients' missions," said Kevin M. Phillips, ManTech President and Chief Operating Officer. "The best weapons in the cyber domain are knowledge and hands-on experience. We are putting this principle to work by equipping our cyber experts to be the best in the business."

"When we introduced our bachelor's and master's degrees in cybersecurity more than two years ago, we recognized a big and growing need for educational support for working adult learners in this field," said Dr. Betty Vandenbosch, President of Kaplan University. Dr. Vandenbosch noted that by some expert accounts, global cybersecurity spending is projected to exceed $1 trillion in the next five years. "ManTech is making an important investment in their employees and our partnership is centered on helping them realize a great return," Dr. Vandenbosch added.

Kaplan University courses are available online so students have the flexibility of when and where they can study.
