Program Description:



Since 1905, ICN has been the "Grande École" Business School in the East of France and at the heart of Europe. Its identity and its development are rooted in the links between management, technology and art. These links will be vital determinants for tomorrow's economic environment.

The mission of ICN Business School is to train students and executives to manage enterprises efficiently, with a commitment to corporate responsability, and to contribute to innovation through creativity.

Its teaching programs are supported by the specialist knowledge of its academic Faculty who make original intellectual contributions to improving managerial practice and furthering the knowledge which is essential to corporate success.

The ICN community is driven by three fundamental values, which find their true expression in the objectives of the ARTEM Alliance: open-mindedness, commitment, team spirit.

The ICN Business School, formerly the "Institut Commercial de Nancy", was created in 1905, by the University of Nancy and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Meurthe-and-Moselle.


Located near the heart of an important commercial region, Nancy is ideally situated in an area that has easy access to Paris, as well as to Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, and Switzerland. The city has grown to nearly 350,000 inhabitants; it has managed to maintain a small-town atmosphere, with numerous green spaces, parks, and sports fields.


Management, economy and legal environment, marketing, strategy, economic and geopolitical environment, finance and control, as well as French, European and international cultures are courses available to IUP study abroad students. Various courses are taught entirely in English; however, students with a good command of the French language are encouraged to take courses in the host language.
