Our world needs business professionals who live lives marked by uncompromising Christlike values, dedication and compassion. At Cornerstone University, a major in computer information systems prepares students for graduate education or entry-level positions requiring information technology, business and analytical skills.

Program Learning Outcomes

The computer information systems program reflects our commitment to developing students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes in five distinct yet interconnected areas: specialized knowledge; applied knowledge and collaborative learning; intellectual skills; civic and global learning; and biblical worldview integration.
