The Collège des Ingénieurs in a nutshell…

Every year, after a careful and rigorous admissions process, a small number of talented engineering and science master’s graduates are admitted to the Collège as Fellows. Our Fellows will receive a fully financed MBA, a salary from the Collège and unique mentoring as part of their education at the Collège. There are two options: the 10-month MBA programme or the combined Ph.D. and MBA programme (Science and Management).

Most of our Fellows are selected from the best European universities and Grandes Écoles. They will graduate the Collège outstandingly prepared for the new challenges of the current 'innovation to market' business revolution.

Our 10-month MBA develops each Fellow for the rigors of leading organizations or startups. Every graduate will be able to learn from world-renowned professors at the Collège, undergo a unique company mission and receive tailored mentoring. During the MBA, each Fellow will apply concepts taught in the classroom to the real business world: 'Learning through Action'.
