ICN is one of the founding members of the ECRICOME concours, a membership selection competition which it created in partnership with the EDHEC, the ESC Reims and the ESC Rouen in 1987. After the EDHEC left the concours, other schools joined, such as the ESC Toulouse, Euromed Marseille École of Management, the ESC Bordeaux and the ESCEM.
In 2014, ICN will open the doors of its new 10 hectares campus in the heart of Nancy containing the schools of Engineering (Nancy) and the school of Art (Nancy). It is the largest university project of France (see section ARTEM).
Jérôme Caby is the General Director of ICN since April 2, 2009.
