Are you ready to grow?

The Cognizant Leadership Summit is more than just a seminar or a series of talks — it’s an interactive experience of discovery that brings together the brightest and most diverse undergraduate students from across North America. You’ll explore the career possibilities at Cognizant that are yours to build, and network with Cognizant professionals. Built into this outstanding one-day virtual event is an insider’s look at Cognizant and our application process. Plus, all Leadership Summit participants are given early first access to application links for Cognizant internship openings after the event.

This program is open to students who are rising juniors. We hire technology majors (computer science, computer engineering, information sciences, analytics), business majors (for our consulting practice) and even have pathways for other majors (liberal arts, science, statistics, etc.) who are considering a pivot into a tech career. Join us!
