Information: CDI is an independent international post-graduate education institution. Funded 100% by the industry, the CDI is proud to be able to offer its participants an exceptional framework and study conditions: the best professors, who teach in the most prestigious private universities (Harvard, Chicago, INSEAD … ) or public (St Gall, Lausanne …), residential seminars to industry standards, high-level coaching, first-rate professional relations with companies. The college covers all study costs, a salary for the college student and delivers an MBA.
All our programs are inspired by the “Act to understand” philosophy; the year at the College is a true professional year.
While all Master’s degree courses in science or engineering are becoming more homogenous, with the globalization of higher education (in Europe the L / M / D system), and all the CVs of young graduates are all starting to look alike, the CDI was created, in France and Germany, in partnership with world-leading groups, to detect, assess and train in management only those, among young engineers graduating from European, American and Chinese universities of excellence, who have a real potential of future business leaders.
Detect, pre-select, interview
in the world, each year 600 engineers graduates, the most talented, coming from the best academic institutions, and likely to assimilate very quickly the teaching of the first rank management professors, teaching in the short list of the first world business schools.
among the 600 engineers, for our program, the 100 whom we consider the most gifted for action, and the most capable of meeting the challenge of results, because they will know how to capture in ten months the attitude, the methods and the specific values of very high business potential.
a unique “assessment process”, the “College of Engineers Program” which has the confidence of leading teams of global partner companies, and which has accelerated the emergence of young talents in key wealth creation positions.
