Enrolling in an academic establishment of the IONIS Education Group means joining the leader of private higher education in France.

Beyond the inherent benefits of its infrastructure, size and influence, it also brings the advantages of a common mindset built around a shared vision and strong values:
Importance is given to human and practical skills and not only to the assimilation of knowledge, because a school is also the place where students build their personality.
Learning to adapt and analyzing new situations to help students master an ever changing environment.
Being constantly open to the world and to the global dynamics of business, to innovation and creativity, while keeping a sense of initiative and entrepreneurship.

IONIS Education Group embodies a modern way of teaching because we are aware of the changing world that surrounds us. We believe it is our duty to better understand families, students, young people and the evolution of society so that we can always be relevant and effective.


IONIS Education Group was founded by Marc Sellam in 1980. Today, it is France's leading private higher education group, with some 20 schools and educational institutions in 12 French cities. The Group serves more than 23,500 students in business, marketing, communication, management, finance, IT, digital applications, aeronautics, energy, transportation, biology, design, and more.

IONIS Education Group's mission is to train the next generation of business intelligence leaders; our students are constantly challenged to cultivate an international perspective, to maintain an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset, and to promote a culture of adaptability and change. This positions our students, and our 65,000+ alumni, as key players in the new economy.

The synergy between our schools is strengthened by the IONIS Digital System, our own digital network linking every campus throughout the country with fiber optic (1,5Gbps Internet bandwidth), which is unique in the French education ecosystem.
