Computer Information Systems

Welcome to the Computer Information Systems (CIS) Department at Cal Poly Pomona. CIS is an option for the degree of business administration. The CIS Department participates in several graduate degrees, including an emphasis in information management in the MBA program, the Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA), and a specialized master’s degree in Information Security (MSIS).

CIS emphasizes solving business problems with computing technology. This can be the development of business applications, Internet security and computer forensics, and business intelligence.

The CIS department has been a leader in Information Systems curriculum development and early adopter of new technologies. A curriculum integrated with current technologies will allow CIS students to acquire marketable knowledge and skills for their career. 

The CIS program has a “learn-by-doing” approach to teaching in which students participate in technology-based projects through service learning, internships and a mandatory group Senior Project with industry.

When asked about our graduates, employers often say that they “hit the ground running,” “have a can-do attitude,” “are great team leaders” and “are not afraid to work.”
