Students also have the opportunity to intern with some of the most exciting brands in fashion, product design, car design, interaction design, luxury goods, and more. Working directly with companies, you’ll learn how to address the most contemporary design challenges in fresh and original ways. Domus Academy is a school where students make the connections that accelerate their careers, gain inspiration from collaborative projects, and develop their skills and talents in a self-directed way. Whether students wish to work at a traditional job or found their own design studio, Domus Academy prepares them to become leaders within all facets of the fashion and design industries. Learning by designing We believe that working on real-world projects is the best way to learn. That’s why 90 percent of our curriculum is “learning by designing.” You’ll work on practical design assignments that replicate today’s professional design practices in an environment supportive of learning and experimentation. Faculty excellence At Domus Academy, you’ll work side-by-side with pre-eminent international designers and thought leaders who bring the pulse of the design world into the classroom and impart their knowledge of the latest design trends and practices. Multidisciplinary approach Many of the most innovative design solutions are created through the collaboration of various design tools, competencies, and perspectives. Students across disciplines share points of view on design and learn to combine these ideas in their own fresh expressions. Multiculturalism Currently, more than 50 nationalities are represented on the Domus Academy campus. We believe that a multicultural point of view spurs a dynamic exchange of ideas and informs design excellence: An open mind sees a diversity of options and chooses concepts with universal resonance. History Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi, Alessandro Guerriero, Valerio Castelli and Maria Grazia Mazzocchi are Domus Academy founders In the early eighties, Milan emerged as the epicenter of Italian design. Yet no one in the city was teaching design in a formalized way. Top art critics and designers recognized an extraordinary opportunity to fill this void and mentor the next generation of designers. In 1982, they founded Domus Academy, Italy’s first postgraduate design school. The founders envisioned a school where students and faculty members from all over the world would meet and exchange ideas. A school that would bring company representatives in to lead real-world projects focusing on the most important aspects of contemporary design. During the early years, leading designers such as Ettore Sottsass, Alessandro Mendini, Denis Santachiara, and Philippe Starck were involved as lecturers and workshop leaders. Domus Academy quickly developed a strong reputation on the international stage for its “learning by designing” methodology and its humanistic approach, which considers process more important than results and places the human being as the central aspect of any project. In 2009, Domus Academy joined Laureate International Universities, an international network that includes more than 80 accredited campus-based and online universities in 29 countries throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, Northern Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Today, Domus Academy continues to involve top names in the design world as mentors and visiting professors. Students are free to express their personalities in a context that promotes both diligence and mistakes as first steps toward a successful project. The school has remained faithful to one of its fundamental founding principles: that, rather than just offering new solutions, design must also reveal new problems. 10 reasons to join us 1 Earn a globally recognized degree When you graduate from Domus Academy, you’ll receive a degree that is recognized in Europe and around the world - the Academic Master’s Degree, accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR).
