Northeast Lakeview College was recently recognized for having one of the best 20 associate degree programs in Cybersecurity. Best Value Schools ranks schools and their programs by the annual tuition and fees per year, and the annual graduation rate. Colleges were ranked in a points system with the emphasis on lower tuition costs and higher graduation rate percentages. A weighted total of three-quarters tuition and fees and the one-quarter graduation rate was then applied for the final score. 

Protecting critical assets over the internet has taken growing precedence in today’s business sectors. With increasing demands for online security and a growing concern for protecting private and trade secret data from hackers, the U.S. job market reflects the needs of cybersecurity in the field. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that cybersecurity jobs will grow 31% from 2019 to 2029.
