A Note from Our Director: “Become an actor for a sustainable world”

Confucius said: “By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart.”

Thinking differently has been at the heart of ISA Lille’s DNA for 50 years. At ISA, we are training future managers who cultivate innovation, entrepreneurship, curiosity and open-mindedness throughout their studies. Our graduates must be able to face the environmental, agricultural, economical and sustenance challenges of an ever-changing world.

Because all of our students are different, each of them can build their own curricula from a personalized orientation and a tailor-made program.

We are proud of our unique school spirit, so we want to continue to be there for our students every step of the way; from their studies to their entry into the professional world and throughout their career.

Most of all, being an ISA graduate means being able to solve problems, manage men and women and innovate, always keeping in mind a global perspective.

Join ISA and stand for a sustainable world.

Director of ISA Lille

Our Mission

Build a brighter future in a sustainable world
ISA Lille’s strategic plan aims at encouraging entrepreneurship through education, innovation, research and internationalization.

Our academic programs are based on the acquisition of solid scientific and technical skills as well as personal development. Scientific courses, individual mentoring, professional immersion throughout our program help our student build their own path, keeping the reality of the corporate world and society in perspective.

Research and Consulting
All of our Research Units belong to larger regional, national and international research networks: Universities, Institutes and our business partners’ R&D departments. These evolving collaborations contribute to guaranteeing the academic excellence of our students’ education and advancing innovation in our fields of research.

There is no global education without international exposure. Internationalization is at the center of ISA Lille’s missions: in our programs, through students and professor mobility, through our academic and professional partnerships, and more.

International Partnerships

In addition to being part of many national and international academic networks, ISA Lille also had more than 200 international partnerships with universities of agriculture and life sciences around the world.
