To strengthen our worldwide position, the ISC Paris Group has pursued an aggressive expansion policy in Asia and Russia, with programs that meet international quality standards. These programs are targeted at local students and professionals, and they employ new, international professors and staff.
An international strategy
At ISC Paris, we are internationally recognized for the quality of our programs, as shown by our AACSB, AMBA, and EPAS accreditations.
We have also been recognized by the international business press, including the Financial Times, which ranked ISC Paris Grande École among the top European and worldwide business schools.
This recognition has allowed us to create international strategic partnerships with universities and business schools around the world.
We have leveraged these partnerships to take some of our executive degree programs global; offering them at international campuses under the same parameters of quality and personal attention that we offer in France. These international campus programs are targeted at working professionals in other countries who wish to continue working while pursuing a full-length degree program.
Upon the request of some of our partner corporations, and French businesses with an international presence, we also offer short programs and business learning trips. These are custom-tailored to each group of participants and do not lead to a degree; they allow participants to leverage ISC Paris’ expertise to improve their skills.
ISC Paris’ international programs focus on local needs and business concerns. To ensure high-quality instruction and an optimal student experience, we maintain full control over the curriculum for these programs. ISC Paris oversees and approves all courses that are offered; we train professors, recruit local students, supervise exams, and ensure that all students are reaching the required learning objectives. All student files are reviewed by the diploma jury at our Paris campus.
International campuses: responding to a demand for high-level educational programs
Since 2016, the ISC Paris Group has welcomed numerous Chinese students to our Paris campus, and we realized that there was a demand for in-country programs in China. In 2017, we formalized this relationship by opening an Executive MBA program in Shanghai. This partnership has since extended to the DBA program.
Alongside our China program, following productive discussions with partners in Russia, we launched our Executive MSc program. We inaugurated our ISC Global Programs presence in Russia in partnership with the University of Voronej, then expanded to Magnitogorsk.
These initial international experiences then led to interest from other international academic partners: we’ll soon be opening new programs in Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia.
