"ICN is fully committed to sustainable development and social responsibility through its values, obligations, and ambitions. Those values are openness, engagement and team spirit. Three core principles that are reflected both in the way we teach and the way we work with local organisations, companies and socio-economic partners. Our global engagement requires us to incorporate an innovative, constantly changing mindset. ICN Business School trains future managers to match the needs of the economy, especially in terms of wealth and job creation. Our ambition is also to equip today’s managers to cope with changing SMEs and major groups. ICN is determined to be the learning centre of the Grand Est region. Our slogan, Creactive Business School, combines the qualities of creativity and proactivity, two traits that are vital for any business leader!”
