What our students think...

I'm proud and happy to be a part of ICN BUSINESS SCHOOL. I've been really impressed by the serious teaching and excellent infrastructure at ARTEM. As we all know, arriving and settling down in a different country is always a nightmare. But I have to say, the student associations in ICN made it easy, they helped me settle in.

What our students think...

Living abroad for a year and half was for me a true revelation and the best opportunity of my whole course at ICN BS. Meeting people from everywhere in the world and discovering new cultures and traditions allowed me to grow in the best way I could have imagined, personally and professionally. I highly recommend to all students the Erasmus experiences offered by ICN BS.
