Study in France at IPAG


Joining IPAG means choosing a school that:

  • considers that a multicultural environment is the ideal framework for training managers in a changing world - 40 nationalities are represented on our campuses
  •  has leading research, distinguished in the Shanghai ranking in Economy and Finance, and emphasizes fundamental issues of our societies (inclusive business, energy transition ...)
  • enjoys a privileged location, both in Paris and in Nice
  • places proximity with its students and their support at the heart of its mission.

In addition, IPAG is part of the Conférence des Grandes Écoles.


International students at IPAG

Two types of international students rub shoulders on our campuses:

  • those preparing for one of the IPAG diplomas
  • those who are there as part of an exchange with a partner university.

In both cases, we consider these students to be real assets for our school which has placed international students at the heart of its educational project since its origins.

We therefore make every effort to facilitate the education of these students within our establishment and settling in France.
