Mantu brings together 10 expert brands covering 360° evolutions of its clients, from company leadership and purpose to technological and managerial transformation, and digital experience, while integrating issues related to the future of work.

A new journey with Centrale Lille students

Centrale Lille stands out for its academic and scientific excellence and the dynamic innovation of its four internal schools. The institution trains high-level engineers and researchers through diverse and demanding programs, meeting the needs of companies seeking talents capable of evolving in varied environments. Founded in 1854, Centrale Lille has approximately 2,000 students and offers more than 16 master’s tracks. 

The partnership between Mantu, through its Amaris Consulting brand, and Centrale Lille will allow students to have privileged access to internship, work-study, VIE (Volontariat International en Entreprise), and job offers provided by the group, which recruits particularly engineering profiles, both to support our clients in the realization of cutting-edge technological projects and to actively participate in the Group’s development ambitions. In 2023, Mantu recruited more than 4,000 people. 

“This agreement with an international group based in the Lille region opens up the horizons for our student engineers in terms of professions, projects, sectors of activity, and geographies. The interactions and cross-opportunities that will be generated by this partnership will nourish and strengthen the professional dimension of their training,” Thomas Maurer, Director of Centrale Lille.
