    Center for Corporate Education

    The Center for Corporate Education, operated by the VCU School of Business Foundation, works with businesses to ensure their employees are prepared to address challenges and seize opportunities. Companies such as Tredegar, Capital One and Altria regularly send their executives and managers to the Center for leadership programs and executive coaching. Programs are led by VCU Business professors and professional trainers. Center instructors meet in advance with company leaders to identify and deliver effective programs that meet the specific needs of each organization.

    New MS Program in Computer & Information Systems Security

    In response to a critical business need, the Schools of Business and Engineering have teamed up to offer a new masters degree in Computer and Information Systems Security. Bringing together the best of computer science and information systems, the program takes a broad interdisciplinary approach designed to get students to see the larger organizational, social, political, ethical and economic aspects of information security. Graduates of the 30-credit program are expected to take on leadership positions in computer and information systems security, including the position of Chief Security Officer.

    We looked at different options, but VCU was the most turnkey match for our needs. They created just the learning environment we wanted. Snead Hall has a business-like setting, so its a good hybrid between education and work.

    The VCU School of Engineering partnered with Dominion three years ago to create a nuclear engineering program. The success of that program demonstrates the possibilities of corporate and University partnerships.

    The VCU School of Engineering now has the most complete offering of nuclear engineering education in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This offering includes an undergraduate track in nuclear engineering and a new masters degree program in mechanical and nuclear engineering.

    Dominion, VCUs partner in creating the nuclear studies program, has already enrolled employees from three different sites in the new masters program in nuclear engineering.
