Ecosystem and Main Partners

CDI, in addition to being a business school with a strong European orientation, wants to build an ecosystem oriented towards talent and innovation, interacting with a network of important partners.


The ecosystem of the Collège des Ingénieurs in Italy is composed not only of fellows and partner companies but also of the numerous initiatives that have sprung up in recent years. Particularly:

Innovation4Change: developed by Collège des Ingénieurs in Italy, Politecnico di Torino, and CERN Ideasquare in 2016, has become the leading impact innovation program, based on collaboration between participants, companies, institutions and NGOs.

Associazione Alumni CDI in Italy: founded in 2011, the association represents a network of over 200 members and promotes networking, training and continuous development activities.

Consulting in innovation: complementary to its education model, Collège des Ingénieurs in Italy helps multinational companies in their path of collaborative systemic innovation.



Nova MBA: the association involves 2000 Italian alumni and MBA students who have attended the best business schools outside of Italy such as Harvard Business School, London Business School, Chicago Booth, Standford Graduate School of Business and many others.

CERN: European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the largest and most respected scientific research centers in the world. CERN and CDI in Italy signed a Memorandum of Understanding and started in 2016 the Innovation4Change project.

Scuola Normale Superiore: from 2020 CDI Italia and SNS have promoted a collaboration agreement to combine their doctoral path with that of the MBA program at the Collège.
