Which among the top colleges in US give their best in Cybersecurity as a domain for MS?What are thelist of best colleges for applying?What grades and other requirements for getting in top colleges?

Hi I'm graduating in the year 2023 as an undergraduate.so I'm planning to study abroad for masters in Computer science or IT fields.my current CGPA is >8.5 and I can maintain this for my rest of the year too.The problem I'm facing is for what colleges do I need to apply as some colleges are excelled in some specific domains. if one asks me I'm more interested in either Cybersecurity domain or in game design and development or in AR and VR or in general Computer studies.im not much of a geek kind of programmer; I do know programming a bit and at the same time I'm unsure about my programming level of skills.so which colleges can I apply for? And which is better to write GRE or GMAT or is writing any of them is mandatory?and any other do I need to write?

Here is a list of the top colleges in USA for Masters in Cybersecurity:

While this is just a general school list, you should also keep in mind that all universities have a certain set of profile requirements, and you need to apply to universities that align with your profile for the same. It’s not necessary that you will be able to apply to all of these mentioned universities because of your profile. Still,  there is also a possibility that you can get into some more exceptional universities. 

I know it can be a bit difficult to find out which universities match your profile, and then there is also a high chance of miscommunication because of a plethora of data over the internet. 

I suggest you check out the FREE School Explore Tool here. It will generate a personalised list of schools that match your profile and preferences. This will make it easier for you to narrow down your best choices then. 

Once you have your school list, I’m sure you would also have questions like how to apply, what are the documents required etc. Let me know, and I will help you with relevant information.
