ICN has recently joined its 2 partners Mines Nancy (engineering) and ENSAD (Art & Design) on the Artem Campus, an architectural gem located in the city centre. Nancy has a lot to offer to its 55,000 students: a strong historical heritage, beautiful Art Nouveau architecture as well as great transportation, cheap accommodation and a lively cultural scene. The other French campus is located in the tech center of Metz together with many other renowned schools and companies and startups head offices, not far from Nancy and even closer to the borders with Luxemburg, Belgium and Germany.

ARTEM is at the heart of ICN Business School’ organizational culture. ARTEM is an acronym and a metaphorical boundary object. As an acronym it represents the processes and the courses developed
while offering interdisciplinary courses to students from our unique alliance among the Ecole Supérieure des Mines de Nancy, an engineering school, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art, a school of arts and ICN Business School. Then as a metaphorical boundary object ARTEM represents our desire to develop challenging courses that not only span knowledge boundaries or subjects (philosophy, arts, marketing) but also push current boundaries.
