International Global Communications

International Global Communications

Twenty-first century communications is increasingly a business arena without borders. Professionals working in communications, advertising and marketing are trying to reach and influence stakeholders around the world every day using sophisticated, integrated, global campaigns. If you are interested in working internationally, why not start early in honing your skills and building your network by studying in an international context ?


ISCOM's international global communications program offers 100% English-language instruction in the heart of Paris to train its students to:

Develop communications programs for leading brands

Understand the culture of anglophone countries

Learn Anglo-Saxon communications techniques

Work in France or anywhere in the world!


ISCOM is one of the most highly regarded communications schools in France, recognized as a "Grand Ecole"and supported by a dynamic network of current and former students, professors and businesses. ISCOM Paris offers English-language instruction in the communications professions, beginning in the first year of study. Foreign students are warmly welcome to apply. From the fall semester of 2014, students entering ISCOM Paris will be able to pursue their communications studies 100 % in English for all five years.
Students who apply to enter at the third year in fall 2014 will receive instruction exclusively in English.
Students may apply to enter ISCOM's international program (100% English) at the fourth year (after receiving a license, Bachelor's degree or equivalent) for their Master 1 or at the fifth year for a Master 2 degree.
ISCOM degrees are recognized by the state and augmented by work / study programs at the Master's level.
ISCOM instructors teach the fundamentals of communications, particularly in the first three years, with topics such as culture, economics, law and business forming the bulk of the classes. Each year represents 60 credits (ECTS) of work. Students specialize progressively over the years, choosing to focus on international global communications; global corporate and brand communications; marketing services and advertising; public relations; and digital communications. Classes are small, averaging around 25 people, and students are evaluated individually, as well as in teams.
Most of ISCOM's classes are taught by communications professionals who are currently working in the agencies and companies in the Greater Parisian area. They bring their insights, the problems they are working on and their enthusiasm into our classrooms in order to give students real-world experiences from the first year.
Furthermore, all students are required to secure internships each year, gradually increasing in duration, from three months in the first two years, then one semester in the third year (required to be international in scope), six months in the fourth year, and, in the fifth year, a work-study program (work four days per week, classes one day per week plus one week per month).

ISCOM Paris has been a pioneer in offering English-language instruction at all levels of its program over the past several years. It has consequently been attracting an ever-more-diverse group of students. They often have dual-nationalities, have lived or studied in other countries--frequently through ERASMUS--and generally speak three to four languages. Their passion and interest in international communications unites them.
Our alumni are currently working for the agencies and businesses that are redefining the practice of communications around the world.

They work in France, but also in the UK, Germany, Monaco, Morocco, Australia, China, South Korea, Canada, Qatar, and many other countries.

What better place to study communications than in a global city ?

Paris is one of the 10 largest cities in Europe, with the largest business district (La Defense). Headquarters for more than 37 Fortune Global 500 companies are located in the region. Some of the world's best-known advertising, marketing, digital communications and public relations agencies operate out of Paris. Fashion and luxury businesses are, of course, at home here, but so are some of the most exciting technology companies and largest consumer products companies in the world. ISCOM has close relationships with these companies, working with them on case studies, competitions and internships.

Students entering ISCOM not only enter the school, but also a rich network of connections that will be vital to securing their first jobs.

Dates for the entrance exams will be listed on the ISCOM Paris Website. More information here
