Booz Allen Hamilton Corporate Partnership Program

About the Program:

Highly ranked and federally designated as a Center of Excellence in Information Assurance Education and Research, the George Washington University (GW) School of Engineering & Applied Science (SEAS) is pleased to support Booz Allen Hamilton’s talent development strategy through a special Corporate Partnership Program. The Department of Computer Science at GW SEAS has built on its nationally recognized expertise in Computer Science and Cybersecurity & Information Assurance to develop two comprehensive masters’ degree programs that offers Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) employees an opportunity to advance their careers and technical skills. BAH employees may apply to participate in the Master of Science in Computer Science or Master of Science in Cybersecurity in Computer Science program while they continue to work full-time.

Each MS program consists of ten courses for a total of 30 credit hours. Classes are taught in the evening and meet once a week at GW’s Main Foggy Bottom Campus in Northwest Washington, DC or at the GW Ballston Campus in Arlington, VA.

  • BAH employees who participate in the Corporate Partnership Program will receive a tuition discount of approximately 45%.
  • With the FlexEd reimbursement benefit provided to BAH employees, the total out of pocket cost for BAH employees will vary from zero to $12,000.00 depending on years of service at BAH. Please contact the BAH Learning and Development Office to confirm tuition remission policy for employees.

The curriculum, outside of the core courses, can be tailored to individual professional interests.

Students who wish to specialize in computer security may apply to the Master of Science in Cybersecurity in Computer Science program. This program requires the same three core courses along with seven designated courses in security.

Prospective students without a bachelors’ degree in computer science are encouraged to apply but may be required to take one or both of the following courses to prepare them to be successful with the remaining courses in the program. These courses are counted towards your 30 credit hour MS degree requirement.

  • CSCI 6010 Introduction to Computer Science Fundamentals
