Chapman is one of the few universities in the nation that offers this program, which combines the strengths of the School of Computational Sciences with those of the Argyros school of Business and Economics to create a hybrid computer information systems degree wherein students develop the ability to design and manage the computer infrastructure of a business. Dubbed “the high tech business degree,” faculty members (who are also working scientists) introduce students to the world of cloud computing, analytics, and mobile apps, thereby giving them a technical leg up in the financial sector.
Internships are critical for a degree of this nature, and the school’s resources have led past students to study at Boeing, Dreamworks, Nickelodeon and Toyota.
The degree in computer information systems prepares students for careers in:
- systems analysis
- systems design
- network security
- database design
- project leadership
- systems management
