At the beginning of the 1980s, Domus Academy established itself as the first post-graduate school for design in the world. The institution is a place for advanced training and research into the processes utilized for industrial creativity, the scenarios of aesthetics, consumer tastes, architecture and the design of spaces, the design of public and private services, and the radical changes connected with the continuous development of new technologies.
Domus Academy has chosen to operate at an international level in order to enrich, promote and update the Design culture by creating relations between advanced forms of knowledge and visionary projects.
Domus Academy has always maintained close links with Italy, and with the city of Milan by many collaborations and relations with Universities, Institutions, Companies.
All of the activities at Domus Academy have been conceived as a great laboratory for the research and exploration of future scenarios. The presence of multidisciplinary teams, the fact that students come from all over the world, and the institution’s vocation for research (typical of Italian design) are its most important components, the ones that characterize its work and study environment. Education at Domus Academy is based on one-year Master courses in various areas of Design, Fashion, Experience and Business.
Lasting one year, the Master courses are aimed at graduate students from diverse disciplines, and are recognized accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR). Domus Academy is based on a cross-disciplinary
