Nice: A favorable ecosystem for economic development
ISART Digital opens its Game Business School in Nice, with the support of the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis and in the context of a partnership with Université Côte d’Azur (UCA)
The school has chosen the Nice metropolitan area for its exceptional setting in the heart of Nice Ecovallée, its international outlook, its French Tech certification, and its numerous companies.
Students will also be able to enjoy a Mediterranean lifestyle, a vibrant cultural scene, and a lively nightlife in the heart of a young and student-friendly urban center that is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Thanks to its opening, ISART Digital’s campus in Nice will create around twenty direct jobs.
The construction of the eco-friendly campus, which includes a business incubator and a student residence, and the arrival of a major school catering to a wide audience on a daily basis will also lead to the creation of indirect jobs in the Nice metropolitan area.
Graduates from ISART Game Business School will have the potential to be at the forefront of new business creations directly in the region.
