ICN Business School is a member of the Chapter of the ‘Grandes Écoles de Management.’ Created in 1905 by the University of Nancy and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Meurthe-et-Moselle, the ‘Institut Commercial de Nancy’ becomes ICN Business School in 2003, a private higher education institution recognized by the State. 


ICN offers a bachelor in Management, several Master of science in business related topics such as  Finance or Marketing and a PhD program.

ICN Business School Artem MScs allow you to develop your managerial skills with open-mindedness, sense of commitment and team spirit. It will also allow you to acquire an advanced professional expertise (with a professional thesis related to the trade / sector targeted) and to conclude your journey with a long experience in business with a 5 months internship minimum.

The programs follow an action oriented educational approach, have close ties to the corporate world and are socially engaged. 


Research at ICN is rooted in the ARTEM philosophy of transdisciplinarity. It is imbued of this idea that frontiers have become territories to explore. Paradigmatic theories deserve more critical attention from the scholarship. ICN Business School’s faculty is engaged in the ‘deconstruction’ of paradigmatic theories. The general purpose is to open and renew paradigms within a cross-cultural theorizing context.

 This applied research often starts in the classroom – during workshops in which students from the three ARTEM Schools participate together with external organizations – and then evolves into research projects, research seminars and peer-reviewed papers.


Part of each study program are up to 9 months of internship, which can be extended by an additional year. 

In order to support students’ and graduates’ integration into the world of work, the ICN attaches much importance to the development of its corporate relations. In addition, the office guides and supports students (via internships) and graduates (via first job offers), providing information about current legislations, the calendar of events, including Careers and Recruitment Fairs, the ‘Careers Marathon’, and professional conferences.

I absolutely love the project-based learning model, but sometimes communications are only happening in French, and are not translated into English.
