    ICN features three modern campuses in Nancy, Paris (France) and Berlin (Germany).

    In Nancy is our main campus, where the school was founded in 1905 together with the local chamber of commerce. The Artem (ArTeM stands for Arts, technology and Management) campus in Nancy, is a common campus shared between the ARTEM partner institutions, the National School of Art and Design and the National School of Engineering. It facilitates the cooperation for transdisciplinary pedagogy and research.

    The ICN Paris campus is situated in the heart of La Défense – Europe’s largest business district – and boasts three lecture theatres on its 400 m² site. It is a centre for learning and a hub facilitating dialogue and relations between students, businesses, lecturers and graduates, a meeting point for ICN’s international community

    In 2019, ICN opened another campus in the heart of Berlin, which stresses the international orientation of the business school. With almost 40% foreign students, the university attaches big value to tolerance, diversity and commitment. Berlin has 3.7 Million inhabitants, 40.000 newly founded start-ups a year, is the center of creative industry and technology providers and thus a good place to study. Companies such as Microsoft, Siemens, Amazon, Google, Fujitsu, Zalando and not least Tesla have also recognized this and settled here.

      Scholarships and Funding

      ICN reserves a few scholarships for students in financial need. ICN does have a social commission which, subject to financial resources, can exempt part of the tuition fees.
      These aids are intended for all ICN students combined (and therefore not specifically for international students). It is a partial scholarship and would only cover part of the tuition fee.

      In this case, the information can be found on the institute's website.

      A list of scholarship awarding German and French institutions is available upon request.

      All study programmes at Berlin campus follow the "alternance structure" and allow students to study three days a week and spend the rest of the week working. Employers in Berlin are used to have working students.
