THREE CORE VALUES:

Humanism, Entrepreneurship and Professionalism. ICD’s programs give students the benefit of broad cultural awareness and a Humanities-focused education throughout their studies. Dedicated workshops and cultural conferences held yearly, cultural partnerships with the Comédie Française, an abundance of association work, a week of cultural diversity activities, a week of sustainable development activities, a mandatory Arts, Culture and Sports unit, which teaches and promotes educational projects throughout the IGS Group’s Schools, as well as a full week each year devoted to student artistic productions, are all part of the dynamic cultural life that encourages students to embrace the idea of humanism, learn «good conduct» principles and develop a sense of human relationships and tolerance towards others.

Individualized educational support with small-sized groups. The study atmosphere at ICD is quiet and group oriented.» Small-sized groups ensure a high level of interaction in the classroom  and constructive cooperation among international students. The faculty works closely with students to offer a rich learning experience.
