Ended up with an A in 6501, Information Policy and Management.

It was a very frustrating course, very thrown-together. We had a big final project, and I guess I did well since I got an A in the course, but we were never given a grade or feedback on the project.

I complained here early on in the course that it was just a boring business course with little or nothing to do with cybersecurity/policy, and it didn't get better from there. It really is just a class about business knowledge-management and nothing else.

Grading the final papers in 6725 was hectic. Tons of students in that class, and we only had a week to do the grading. With these folks being at the grad level, I am surprised at how terrible some of them were. But there were certainly lots of really great papers too. It looks like they'll be asking me back as a TA next term, and I'll likely accept.

I'll be taking two classes next term. One of the two that I was going to take was cancelled last moment, and since I've already taken all the other courses available for the policy course, they said I could take one of two course options from the OMS Analytics program (not sure why they didn't just offer something from one of the other two non-policy OMNS Cybersecurity tracks?) -- either Digital Marketing or Business Fundamentals for Analytics. The last thing I want is another business course right now, so I went with Digital Marketing. Another class that has nothing to do with cybersecurity or policy... This is an interesting degree program  Rolleyes

The other course is "Privacy for Professionals."

Interesting, I wonder who it is! I am feeling your frustrating now with PUBP 6501. I see what you mean by, it is just a business management class and nothing to do with Cyber Security. So I am still contemplating if I should stick with the IS track or move forward and go to the Policy track. Wish me luck, those quizzes in 6501 is stressful.

Unfortunately that class doesn't get better. When infosec is mentioned, it's surface level and outdated. I can't believe they offered it again this term, I didn't talk to a single student from the first term that didn't agree that it needed a major overhaul.
