Founded in 1985 by Françoise and Jean-Marie Schmitt, the Institut d’Études Supérieures des Arts (IESA) is a private educational group based in Paris, France. It has been officially recognized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication since 1998.
Our three departments encompass a wide range of disciplines in the cultural sector. With its three departments covering three broad areas of study (art expertise, cultural events and heritage, and new technologies) IESA offers students a well-rounded view of the cultural sector. Our aim is to offer a new cross-disciplinary approach, freeing different cultural fields (the art market, tourism, publishing, event planning, and the performing arts) from their rigid categories and familiarizing students with a range of disciplines that they might otherwise not have a chance to study.https://www.iesa.edu/paris/iesa-arts-culture-school-paris
