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.
