With over 260,000 employees, Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp is a global corporation that provides digital, consulting and operations services.

The company was originally an in-house technology unit of Dun & Bradstreet that handled large scale IT projects, but started handling requests outside of the company in 1996.

As well as being a component of the S&P 500, Cognizant got added to the NASDAQ-100 Index in 2004.

At the heart of the business is the organization-wide Cognizant Business Consulting (CBC) team. Keeping this team up to date with the latest talent is no small task; in fact, Cognizant is among the largest recruiters of MBAs in the industry!
