The business world is a complex one in which constant change has become the norm. In order to grow, companies must be able to meet, or even anticipate, expectations and new uses and innovate all the while. Such are the strategic challenges for any business.


A commercial success is not the result of chance. That’s why we apply all of our knowledge and expertise to constantly analyze our markets, reconfigure existing products and create new ones. We also explore new markets, in France and abroad, since sometimes future successes are found elsewhere.


With a full and comprehensive curriculum and a strong international perspective, ICD has a solid understanding of the challenges that today’s companies face in a globalized, hyper-reactive economy. It is a real opportunity for anyone who attends this outstanding school.
