What do these rankings mean? they are a useful way to differentiate between schools.

In choosing a school, students’ selection criteria should undoubtedly include these types of rankings. But it’s also important to consider your own–highly personal–expectations in terms of the school’s instructional approach, support, proximity to businesses, specializations, learning environment, and value for money. ISC Paris’ reputation is particularly strong in those last two areas.

We are a school on a human scale, where you can get to know other students, form connections with professors, and where we truly support our students in identifying their career goals.

ISC Paris has one of the best “value for money” ratios, because we give students the tools to grow professionally and find jobs at highly-ranked companies. We’re ranked 13th on the Financial Times “value for money” list, based on the relationship between the cost of an education and students’ salaries three years after graduation.

To provide greater access to our programs, we are also committed to offering work/study options for the traditional tracks in all of our programs.

Our rankings are rising, because our programs are solid and sustainable

ISC Paris’ improved rankings are the result of many unique factors: our Grande École program being accredited by international entities (AACSB, AMBA, and EPAS), our international reputation, the strength of our relationships with businesses, and our graduates’ career success and the return on their educational investment.
