Adding value to traditional education

CI is an accelerated learning provider offering full-time immersive in-person courses that combine intensive classroom-based workshops, practical work experience-based training and a link to potential employers. Since founding in 2011, we have enjoyed a strong track-record working with educators to positively affect the outcomes of bright, ambitious students.


For colleges, our programs provide an avenue to help students through experiential education and develop the practical skills and experience necessary to launch successful careers in today’s competitive and rapidly evolving employment landscape.

Successful education-to-employment systems
share one key attribute that is crucial to their
success at improving outcomes: education
providers and employers step actively into each
other’s worlds.1

1McKinsey & Co, Education to Employment, Designing a System That Works

Our alumni are hired more quickly and earn more than their peers straight out of college – three times more quickly (2.5 versus 7.5 months) and 30% more ($36k versus $47k), in fact, compared with both the US and UK national graduate averages.

Ignoring the qualitative benefits from experiencing two-months in a global city with a cohort of like-minded, high-potential early-in career students and graduates, the 30% earnings premium alone enjoyed by CI alumni represents a trade of eight weeks for eight years.

Eight weeks invested in a CI program helps a graduate yield a positive return on their investment in their post-secondary education eight years sooner.
