    Neither is better than the other in "accreditation". They are both regionally accredited.
    Both CTU and NSU are NCA Centers of Excellence in Information Assurance /Cybersecurity, so it seems like they have built a bit of a specialization in the area. Overall, I'd give a definite edge to Nova Southeastern ; it is not an "online school", with large residential campus and full range of degrees up to and including Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and the JD.

    Are those the only schools you considered, and if so, why?

    Western Governors University would be one to check.

    WGU doesn't have Doctoral programs.
    Capitol College is one alternative. Northcentral is another, although offers degrees that are less technical (essentially Business degrees).

    I have searched for many colleges that offers online Doctoral either computer science or Information Assurance , these are the top universities I found.
    I just compared btw. Nova and CTU , but for Nova there's no summer semester for Doctoral degree, I should wait to fall 2017, that's why I wanna check if they are the same accreditation so I can start with CTU earlier on March(6 or 7 months is matter for me).
    Thank u guys for help and advice.. I want to hear more options if u have

    Capella University : https://www.capella.edu/online-degre...ance-security/

    Northcentral University has a PhD in Business Administration with a specialty in Computer and Information Security . And possibly a DBA with that specialty but I can't tell from their website. I guess you have to download their catalog to know.

    Of all the ones mentions so far, I would probably go with the DSc in Cybersecurity from Capitol Technology University first, then Nova Southeastern , then Capella , then CTU . Having heard on this forum that NCU holds back their doctoral students during the dissertation process to strain revenue out of them, I would strike them off altogether.

    I have spent my weekend researching some of this as well, and found this thread.
    I would present two more universities: Dakota State's Doctor of Science in either Information Systems or Cybersecurity and Indiana State 's PhD in Technology Management.
    Reading from past threads, I'm surprised no one made the distinction about CTU or Capella being for-profit schools lol.

    In the environment landscape of 2017, I wonder if this distinction is losing its edge.
    I'm personally seeking a doctorate to fulfill a personal challenge, earn an edge in corporate America and teach online at various schools on information systems and business.

    I will apply to DSU first and if not accepted, go with CTU or Capella (safety schools lol)

    You might want to take a look at the program at Dakota State University's Doctor of Science in Cyber Security.

    I was at the Nova Southeastern University 's Ph.D in Information Assurance .
