The Collège believes that entrepreneurship and innovation are more than part of a curriculum. Within the realm of multiple innovation programmes and projects, we focus on moving from idea and innovation to action and the marketplace.
From idea to the marketplace
More than 100 companies have been created over the past 10 years by graduates of the Collège des Ingénieurs, either directly after their graduation or after several years of professional experience.
Innovation projects (like Venture Lab, Open Innovation, Brain to Market, Innovation for change) are an important ingredient of the MBA programme. They all encourage an entrepreneurial spirit and have led to the generation of real start-ups or created business ideas. Our Fellows are able to access intimate and tailored coaching throughout each project they undertake through the form of seminars or one-to-one discussions.
