College Des Ingenieurs

The CDI is an international independent institution for post graduate education. 100% financed by industry, the CDI is proud to be able to offer its participants a unique framework and very special studying conditions : the best professors who teach in the most prestigious private universities ( Harvard, Chicago, INSEAD ) and public universities ( St Gall, Lausanne ), industry standard residential programs and workshops, a management structure based on a consulting model and strong professional links with business.

Unique  – the CDI covers the total costs of tuition, pays a salary to its participants and rewards all this work, in theory and in practice, with an MBA. All programs are based on the motto : “Learning through action”: A year at the CDI really is a year spent on the job.

The CDI has been created, in France and in Germany and in partnership with leading corporations throughout the world. CDI is the top graduates from the best European, American and Chinese universities. However, the CDI was created to select only those young graduate engineers and scientists with real leadership potential and to train them in management to become future high potential managers.
