ICD Business School

Since ICD’s creation in 1980 the schools in Paris and Toulouse primarily specialise in sales, marketing and business development. Those schools belong to the IGS Group. Throughout the years, we have been running post-baccalaureate programmes that successfully combine academic, professional and international dimensions. In addition to a 5-year Grande Ecole Management Programme leading to the award of a State-approved Master's degree, ICD Business School also offers 3-year Bachelor's degree programmes in the fields of business development, marketing and event management. All of ICD's programmes integrate professional experience and international mobility opportunities.
