The highlights of student life


Life at IPAG is punctuated by many other community events besides classes. These high points in school life help develop a true spirit of cohesion among students.

F.I.V.E.: make the leap!

At IPAG, you will embark on plenty of memorable experiences. For 1st-year students, adventure begins as soon as school starts with the F.I.V.E. (Foncez et intégrez votre école). This one-week step-by-step integration programme allows you to discover life at IPAG, meet your fellow students, ask questions to your elders, and take up your first challenges, all the while enjoying a warm and friendly atmosphere.


The integration week-end

While the school year starts at top speed, you will have every opportunity to relax during the integration week-end. Treetop adventure trails, slip n’ slide, sumo wrestling... The Student Life Association (BDE) has a wide range of sportive and fun activities in store for you – not to forget the eagerly-awaited Saturday night party, a not-to-be-missed event to join the IPAG family.


Your first business game

You will regularly have the opportunity to compete against your classmates in business games during your studies. The Nice Business Challenge is one of these key events. It is held on the Nice campus and gathers all 1st-year students around a sales contest. Your mission: to organise an exhibition dedicated to the marketing of an innovative product within 3 days. You will have to help each other and build team cohesion in order to succeed.


Ski trip

In need of a break? The IPAG Sports Association (BDS) invites you to hit ski slopes by joining its annual one-week mountain trip: an opportunity for you to meet other IPAG students from both the Paris and Nice campuses and unwind together in a different environment. This event also provides 2nd- and 4th-year members of the Association with a great opportunity to apply your project management skills.

The gala

The graduation ceremony, which opens a long gala evening held at a prestigious venue of the capital, is the highlight of your student life: diploma ceremony, photo shoot, valedictorian award ceremony, best final dissertations ceremony, etc. Finally, solemnity gives way to festivity until the break of dawn.
