Description of Work Unit

The Department of Computer Information Systems has eleven full-time faculty and is one of five departments in the College of Business.

Together, the Department and College provide excellent support for research including summer research programs and a dedicated lab for behavioral research. The College of Business at Colorado State University enrolls more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students in on-campus and online programs.

The CIS department has approximately 200 students enrolled in its Master of Computer Information Systems program and provides the program to online learners using this same "lecture capture" delivery model. The program has consistently been ranked as one of the top 20 information systems programs in the nation.
