Ties with Industry

IFP School bridges the gap between the academic and industrial worlds. Every year, partnerships exist with over 50 companies, which take a variety of forms :

Support to students

IFP School boasts the experience and expertise for identifying talented applicants and developing the skills and know-how required by industry.

IFP School is very selective when it comes to admitting students, which is appreciated by our industrial partners. It is one of the reasons why more than 90% of graduates find a job immediately, as the variety of student profiles and nationalities, their skills and potential make them ideal candidates for joining IFP School and companies alike
80 % of students in the applied graduate programs receive company-backed financing.

By supporting IFP School and contributing to its programs, our industrial partners have special access to young people with unique profiles, both during their time at IFP School and once they have graduated.

  • alternating periods in school / company, especially as part of apprenticeships

  • grants/scholarships provided as part of student sponsorships to attract talent
