 “With this partnership, we strive to add mission-critical programs to our curriculum in order to provide ManTech’s workforce with cutting-edge knowledge and skills that help position the organization to realize its vision and mission,” said Jeffrey Buck, Purdue Global vice president and dean of the School of Business and Information Technology. “As skilled tech professionals with data analysis expertise, ManTech employees will have the opportunity to make a difference by delivering best-in-class customer solutions.”

For ManTech employees, the new program is available with no individual out-of-pocket expense as part of the Purdue Global Advantage Tuition Grant initiative.

“ManTech is thrilled to offer our people access to this advanced analytics program,” said Julie Anna Barker, ManTech chief human resources officer. “Bringing digital to the mission requires in-depth knowledge of analytics for our customers in the defense, intelligence and federal civilian sectors.”

Purdue Global continues to work with ManTech in areas that serve the educational needs of ManTech employees. In addition to the Master of Science in Data Analytics degree, employees can choose to develop their career with a bachelor’s degree in analytics, a bachelor’s or master’s degree in information technology or cybersecurity, or a bachelor’s degree in cloud computing and solutions. Employees also have access to cohort programs designed by Purdue Global and ManTech to help them prepare for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional and Certified Ethical Hacker examinations.
