Our "historic" Parisian campus is ideally located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a high spot for the cultural and intellectual life of the capital.
At the start of the 2020 academic year, IPAG will be inaugurating its second Parisian campus in the 15th arrondissement: a brand new 5,000 sqm², fully connected with a media library, numerous co-working rooms, a cafeteria and a gymnasium. The building will even have an organic garden and beehives on its roof.

Rooted the heart of Nice for more than 30 years, on the site of the former Chambre des Métiers was located, our campus, which facade is historically listed, welcomes more than 1,000 students of over 40 nationalities.

Campus Kunming China

In Kunming, discover today's China

Kunming is located in Yunnan, one of the most beautiful regions of China. In addition to the quality of its teachings, the university offers several advantages: many sports facilities (football fields, tennis courts, Olympic swimming pool), but also an eco-friendly environment (electric scooters, minibus network). IPAG students can study there at no extra cost and take courses in Chinese language, culture and civilisation. For the travel lovers, the spectacular Tiger Leaping Gorge, Vietnam and Laos are nearby.

Riverside Campus UCR Los Angeles

In Riverside, live the California dream

At the gates of the mythical Palm Desert, you can experience the American-style campus life and enjoy a wide variety of sports facilities and an intense associative club life around an impressive library. While California's beaches and ski resorts are just around the corner, the Silicon Valley and Hollywood are also worth a visit.


IPAG is a non-profit organisation and an independent structure. Its unique governance model allows for the representation of the different actors in the life of the school within the Administration Board.

IPAG Parents' Association


Founded in 1993, the IPAG Parents' Association (APE) represents the parents of our students on the Paris and Nice campuses. It takes part in the school's life, decisions and influence of IPAG, with a threefold goal:
•    sharing information between the school and parents
•    sharing parents' experiences and networks
•    encouraging and rewarding excellence in student projects


How it works

The APE is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of about 20 members, who meet about once a month. All year groups currently studying in Paris and Nice are represented.

The board members of directors are divided into working committees, some of which are specifically in charge of a group.  

An ordinary general meeting of the adhering members of the APE is convened at least once a year. On this occasion, school officials are in attendance to give an update on the different year groups and answer any questions.

The APE President is a member of the Board of Directors of the IPAG Business School Group, on which he represents the APE.
