2023 work-based experiential education programs


1. Summer 2023 Programs – Admissions now open 

Admissions for all 2023 programs are now publicly open.  

Early access applications for our flagship programs – the 8-week, cohort-based, summer-only Global Accelerator Programs held in London and New York – were the highest in our 12-year history.  

Given this, and three or so years of pent-up student interest, we expect all Summer 2023 programs to fill shortly.

Interested students should apply at their earliest opportunity via: 


All CI programs center around an 8-week placement with a leading employer, in one of 9 career fields and one of 20 cities across the globe, paired with our proprietary Career Navigator and Future Leader training courses.  

Beyond offering experiences of a lifetime, our experiential education programs are designed to maximize first job and first decade career outcomes. After college, CI alums secure graduate-level employment 3x faster and earn starting salaries 30% higher than their peers. 


2. 2023 CI Student Aid Fund – Secure awards now 

Our in-house student aid fund provides financial assistance (of up to $2013 USD) to all participating students. 

Students may calculate and secure their student aid award before submitting a CI program application via: 


Our student aid fund is finite and allocated on a first come, first served basis. Again, interested students are advised to calculate and secure their share at their earliest opportunity.
