Sino-French Institute of 'Arts and Design Management' campus

Following its success and recognition by the Chinese government in the field of higher education, KEDGE was approached by the China  Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) to set up a new Sino-French Institute in the innovative field of Arts and Design Management. The primary objective of this Institute is to train Chinese art students in management skills for a booming Chinese cultural market. Ultimately, the ambition is to make this IFC a unique hub combining teaching, research and cross-disciplinary projects to develop co-operation between France/Europe and China/Asia.

Historically located in Beijing, the administrative capital of the People's Republic of China, the CAFA has chosen to set up the Sino-French Institute in 'Arts and Design management' in Shanghai, in the suburb of Lingang New City in the heart of the economic capital of the country. The location was chosen for its proximity to the economic world. With a surface area of 35,000 m², more than 25,000 m² of which is built, the IFC Arts and Design Management campus accommodate over 1,200 students who benefit from high-level teaching equipment, an art gallery for exhibitions and an art library. The amount invested in the Institute is 171,360,000 yuans (23,446,983 euros), fully funded by the People's Government of the new Pudong District. Find out more
