The Washington Center recognizes Robert Morris University
Schools that provide students with proper resources for obtaining internships and practical experience boost graduate success. The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars named RMU the 2014 Academic Seminar University of the Year for doing just that. An example of RMU’s commitment to on-the-ground experience: Hours after the U.S. government filed cyber espionage charges against China, 20 RMU cyber forensics and information security majors were asking questions at the embassy.
