Governance

Our work is guided by a powerful set of values and a senior management team committed to train efficient business development managers who are able to operate successfully in a complex environment.

Mission​​​​​​​

Our mission is to train future professionals in the art of responsible business, offering them the skills and expertise to play an active role in the development of organisations and contribute to a sustainable economy in a digital and international environment. ICD prepares students to work together differently in a complex and unpredictable world, by promoting social commitment and cultural openness while upholding ethical values and embracing diversity.

Values

Three values guide our operations and initiatives.

Humanism

Our learning approach enables us to go beyond just doing the ‘bare minimum’ by welcoming students from all horizons and offering them opportunities during their studies to discover a broad range of international, artistic, cultural and sporting inputs.

Entrepreneurship

Our wish is to enable each student to successfully construct both their career and life project. To achieve this, students are able to personalise their learning programme and benefit from an individual support system.

Professionnalism

We encourage our students to develop a highly professional approach to what they do. This is achieved by a pedagogical approach that largely focuses on learning by doing. The projects, challenges, case studies and simulations carried out by students enable them to naturally combine practice with theory.

This board oversees ICD’s research policy and ensures the coordination between the school’s research and teaching activities.

ICD’S RESEARCH SUPPORTS THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PROGRAMMES

LaRA’s research teams focus their work on four main areas of research :

  • Digital technologies, big data & artificial intelligence
