      ABOUT CI

      CI is an early-career accelerator. We partner with traditional educators and leading companies to close the skills gap that is leaving entry-level jobs unfilled and half of graduates under-employed.1

      Since 2011, our structured outcomes-focused programs combine work- based practical training, class-based seminars and workshops, and hands-on coaching. We equip graduates with the skills, experience and links to employers necessary to launch successful careers in todays evolving and competitive employment landscape.

      CI creates globally engaged, career-ready graduates. Upon college graduation, CI alumni secure meaningful employment three-times faster with starting salaries 30% higher than their peers.
