L'école en quelques mots
General presentation of the Camondo School
Teaching anchored in today’s world
The Ecole Camondo offers high-level teaching in interior architecture and design. Over a 5-year course, teaching spans the wide spectrum of professions covered by these disciplines, at the intersection of art, economics, technology and social and environmental awareness.
In September 2023 in Toulon, and in September 2024 in Paris, Camondo launches a master’s degree in English (English track), for students who consider an international career.
Due to its unique situation, with a dual presence in France at Camondo Paris and Camondo Mediterranée in Toulon, this private higher education establishment is renowned for the quality of its teaching and its degree is recognised by the entire profession.
In order to give its students an education based on the balance between expression and thought, the Ecole Camondo defines itself as a space for discussion, by encouraging debate and bringing the issues inherent in today’s world into its educational project.
In doing so, the Ecole Camondo prepares future professionals for trades and roles essential to society, from architecture and interior architecture to design, scenography and the applied arts.
The school, which was founded over 75 years ago, is part of the MAD Paris – Musée des Arts Décoratifs, a leading cultural institution, an international conservatory of expertise in arts and crafts, which has one of the largest collections in the world. As such, students of the Ecole Camondo enjoy special access to the collections, the library and the cultural events organised by the institution (exhibitions, lectures, etc.) and develop educational projects based on museography.
At the end of the five-year course, both in Paris and in Toulon, the Ecole Camondo awards a degree equivalent to master’s level recognised by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. It also offers a Foundation Course for the entrance competition for public and private art, applied arts and architecture universities.
Ever since it was founded, the Ecole Camondo has seen several generations of teachers and students come and go, all of whom have helped grow the school’s reputation and identity, bringing it closer in line with its time than ever before.
The school’s alumni include renowned architects and designers, such as Patrick Bouchain, Elisabeth Garouste, Jacques Grange, Pierre Paulin, Philippe Starck and Jean-Michel Wilmotte. More recently, recognised professionals such as Emmanuelle Simon, Festen, Garnier & Linker, A+A Cooren and Pierre Gonalons have joined the wide network of “Camondiens”.
