This paper presents a case study for a new Master of Science in Enterprise Information Systems program created at Colorado Technical University in which security courses occupy over 20% of all classes within the program. Should there be such a high emphasis on security courses? Through reviewing the performance of the first class of students in the Enterprise Information System Capstone course of this program, we can conclude that the investment on the security education is absolutely necessary. These courses have laid down the critical foundation for students to correctly handle today’s ever growing real world Enterprise Information Systems’ challenges.
