IÉSEG’s Lille campus features six buildings (with a total of 22,500 m2) located in central Lille.

The campus hosts more than 3,000 students annually who enjoy a wide variety of modern and functional facilities, including meeting rooms, computer rooms, trading rooms, etc. As a part of the Catholic University of Lille, in a neighborhood hosting 31,000 students, IÉSEG students have access to IÉSEG’s own library, but also to university and online libraries as well. In addition, the Lille campus is undergoing a renovation and extension project, the IÉSEG Village, for its historic Lille campus. The objective of this project, inspired by the input and work of the School’s community (staff and students), is to create a campus of international standing, offering students a unique intercultural learning experience.

La Défense – Europe’s largest purpose-built business district.

The La Défense location of IÉSEG’s Paris campus is a strategic plus. Established primarily to strengthen IÉSEG’s links with French and international companies, it has enhanced the institution’s international reputation and visibility. As IÉSEG’s reputation continues to grow along with its student population, the expansion of the Paris-La Défense campus in 2017 has enabled the School to welcome almost twice as many students as it could before. Composed of three buildings with a total of 16,500 m2 (177,000 sq. ft.), the campus offers students 20 lecture halls, 40 classrooms, three multimedia rooms, two trading rooms, a library, two cafeterias and meeting rooms for clubs and associations.
