A word from the director

Bertand Eygun

Dear Parents and Friends,

For those of you who are visiting this website for the first time, let me welcome you to the ICOF. We have been committed to the education and training of young people in Lyon for nearly a hundred years, preparing them particularly for jobs in administration, business, accountancy, finance, management, and, more recently, IT.

Following the example of our co-founders, the Ursuline Sisters of the Roman Union and the Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1916, the ICOF intends not only to train our students ‘with words, but more importantly with facts’, as the Ursuline schools already did back in 1597 !


We are delighted to welcome you to our classrooms where studies range from the Technological STMG Baccalauréat (management and finance/marketing/Human Resources/information and management systems) to the DSCG degree (advanced diploma in accountancy and management which is necessary in order to have the status of a trainee chartered accountant), our four BTS (Technical) degrees, the DCG degree (diploma in accountancy and management which is essential in order to study for the DSCG), the Bachelor’s degree of payroll system management in conjunction with the Lyon IAE (Institute of Business Administration), and courses where the third-year is spent in the UK or Ireland.

I would be delighted to meet you and show you our establishment. Hopefully the following pages will give you a taste of what we have to offer.

Bertrand Eygun

Director, ICOF
