Art, Technology, Management



The ICN Grande Ecole Programme offers an innovative education, alongside the schools of engineering, art, architecture and design. On and between our different campuses and throughout the programme, you’ll work on learning sequences dedicated to trans-disciplinarity. The whole experience takes place in a group, with students from other disciplinary fields, schools and universities.

In Nancy, you’ll have the chance to work with Mines Nancy and the National School of Art and Design, and other partners. Our focus on developing trans-disciplinarity means that we’re continually extending our partnerships.

The Carpentry Academy, an architecture and design school in Paris, is one of our newest partners. This set-up is unique in France, especially in Nancy, where associations are shared on the same campus.

Teaching #ArtTechnologyManagement as part of the Master in Management

1st year

Get off the merry-go-round!

When you start at PGE1, you’ll be invited to visit the campus with all of the PGE1 students from Mines and ENSAD, featuring some “disconcerting” team work. Designed to surprise, this first encounter with students from the other two schools takes place as part of an induction week focused on creativity.

Creactive Business Days
CreaCtive Days are an innovate teaching approach to boost your employability, with a realistic professional edge combined with creativity, team spirit, openness, curiosity and culture. Divided into groups of ten, 500 participants are encouraged to become aware of different cultures and question their mindsets.

"ICN Creative Thinking" project
Throughout the first year, you’ll see through a project that you’ve decided on, and present it to a jury of professionals and teachers. You’ll need to convince them of the interest and relevance of your project. You can also request support and mentoring to develop the project and end up establishing an innovative, creative company.
