Insights matter.

A computer information systems major at Cornerstone University prepares you to advance as a business technology professional in a growing career field. Equipped with the skills to excel as an innovative problem solver, you will exercise logical thinking and find new ways to apply the use of technology in organizations.

At Cornerstone, we do not require you to have prior knowledge of computer programming before declaring a major in computer information systems. Expert faculty will give you theoretical and practical experience you need to know for topics such as web development, network configuration and database creation. This positions you to graduate as a well-rounded technical professional.

The Business Division is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.
