About the school

ICN Business School is a non-profit association, a private higher education institution with general interest status, and is partnered with the University of Lorraine. Tuition fees are our main source of funding.

Our goal: train students to become responsible managers who are able to achieve performance and profitability while respecting society and the environment.

Equipping the school with additional resources means we can go further and faster to achieve the ambitious goals that set us apart. It benefits our students, future professionals, and boosts attractiveness, innovation and economic development in the region.

By supporting ICN Business School, you’ll be helping us provide a "creactive" and responsible education! Whether you’re a private individual (graduate, student parent, etc.) or a business, you can support ICN by donating (or making a legacy payment) to the ICN Endowment Fund.

Sponsorship is financial or material support freely provided by a company for charitable purposes. It often helps a business to improve its image (philanthropy, supporting education) and mobilise its employees.

There are three types of sponsorship:

  • financial sponsorship consists of providing funds
  • sponsorship in kind consists of donating goods and/or services
  • skills sponsorship consists of making one or more employees available to carry out a mission.

Benefits and conditions

Sponsorship (or donation) entitles the donor to a tax reduction:
60% of the amount paid can be deducted from income or corporation tax, up to a maximum of 0.5% of the company's annual turnover.

After tax deduction, a donation of €25,000 therefore only costs €10,000.

Companies can’t demand significant compensation in return for sponsorship.
