About CDV

Collegium Da Vinci is the academic successor of the School of Humanities and Journalism which up until the end of 2014 has promoted some 12,000 graduates. It is now undergoing a process of rebranding scheduled to be completed in 2015. We are changing for you!

Why the change?

„He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast” – Leonardo Da Vinci.

Collegium Da Vinci is the modern type of university which serves as a career-accelerator facilitating the road from being a student to being a man (or woman) of business.

Collegium Da Vinci values revolve around the legacy of one of the greatest minds that has ever lived. Our students create and represent the ideal fusion of knowledge with practice, according to Leonardo’s message. In the mod­ern world where innovation empowers change we like to think of our Collegium Da Vinci as a StartUp! Opportunity for people of all ages. We believe that only constant testing of our skills and strengths against the dynamically changing environment, gives us an opportunity to succeed.

We remain proud of our university’s achievements over the last two decades. We continue to stand out as the oldest private university in the Wielkopolska region. Our years of expertise in teaching people of all ages, tradi­tions, qualified staff, and modern facilities make our degree diplomas a valuable asset in the eyes of employers around Poland and beyond.

Leonardo Da Vinci was an acclaimed engineer, inventor, artist and a keen observer of the environment. He was renowned for his ability to combine theoretical sciences with engineering practice. All of us at Collegium Da Vinci also strive to transform ideas into real and tangible shapes.

The key message we put across to our future students and later graduates is: Become Masters of Practice and make a difference in your lives!
