Application for the MBA Programme or Science and Management Programme

To apply to the Collège, you need to submit the official application form along with the required documents.

You can request the application form at any time of the year by clicking on the box below. After we have checked that you meet the eligibility criteria to be a candidate, we will send you the application form. Please note that receiving the application form does not mean that you have been admitted to the MBA programme.

Please follow the instructions to apply for either the MBA programme (which starts in January or September) or the Science and Management programme (which starts only in January).

The following requirements must be met

  • The Collège des Ingénieurs MBA programme is open to
    • graduates of the Grandes Écoles d’Ingénieurs in France,
    • holders of a Master of Science or Master of Engineering degree from a leading university,
    • and doctors of science, medicine, or pharmacy.
  • Candidates must have a solid scientific or technical background and professional experience of less than three years.
  • Candidates must be fluent in English. Proficiency in a third language (in particular German, Italian, Chinese, and more) is highly appreciated.
  • The CDI also requires strong human qualities, leadership, professional maturity, determination, rigour, communication skills, and an entrepreneurial, non-conformist mindset.
  • Admission to the programme is based exclusively on merit, identified potential, and the candidate's motivation.


The Collège des Ingénieurs MBA programme is also open to doctoral students as part of the Sciences and Management programme. This programme, founded in partnership with the Sorbonne Université and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, has since extended to all intensive research universities (such as LMU and TU Munich, RWTH Aachen, University of Heidelberg, Paris-Saclay, Université PSL, Politecnico di Torino, Politecnico di Milano, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, ETH Zurich, EPF Lausanne, NTNU, or Oxford).

The programme enables you to follow a research-based education to prepare yourself to be a major player in innovation within private or public companies or to increase your chances of success when launching a start-up. The theoretical part of the MBA programme takes place during the three years of the doctoral thesis. The company mission is carried out at the end of the programme to enhance professional integration.
