University of Trento School of International Studies

Italy Trento October 2017

About our School Today, the phenomena of globalization and integration are pervasive and relevant. They are often perceived, on the one hand, as being distant, fragmentary and sometimes threatening, and, on the other, as providing opportunities for individual nations or groups of nations. Such ambivalence presents a formidable challenge to the ruling classes and to national public opinion, a challenge that cannot be answered without the kind of integrated responses and… [+] interpretive approaches possible only within a multidisciplinary context. The University of Trento has responded to this challenge by promoting research, education and professional training in the field of international studies through the School of International Studies (SIS). Established in 2001 thanks to the close and continued collaboration between its component Faculties (now Departments) of Law, Economics, Sociology and Arts & Humanities, the School turned into a Centre of the University in 2012. The School is the only Graduate School in Italy offering advanced courses in International Studies for students who completed a three-year undergraduate degree. It organizes a two-year Master’s programme in European and International Studies – Laura Magistrale in Studi Europei e Internazionali (MEIS), a two-year Master's programme in International Security Studies - Laura Magistrale in Studi sulla Sicurezza Internazionale (MISS) and a three-year Doctoral programme in International Studies. These Graduate programmes form a natural continuation of the three-year undergraduate degrees offered by the School’s participating Faculties/Departments in the field of International Studies. As an advanced institute of interdisciplinary studies, the School of International Studies is unparalleled in Italy and, in the few years since its inception, has become a leading reference point in Europe for graduate teaching and research in Economics, Law, and Politics. Graduates have gone on to senior positions in international arenas as well as academic careers with postdoctoral and tenured positions in Europe and abroad. The School is a vibrant academic environment. Students, faculty members, post-doc researchers and visiting professors from all over the world participate in the School’s teaching and research activities. The School hosts international conferences on subjects ranging from the global economic order to topics related to the European Union, from international security to international institutions. These events complement the rich programme of guest speakers, including both academics and professional practitioners, and visiting researchers, all contributing to the creation of a stimulating intellectual community.

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Milan

Italy Milan October 2017

The cradle of design and industry. At the heart of a metropolitan area that bears comparison with London and New York, Milan is for the whole world a synonym for art, industry, finance, design and fashion. Artists of the calibre of Leonardo and Bramante worked in Milan, and four centuries later, Marinetti and Boccioni, founders of the Futurist Movement. More recently, celebrated architects and designers, such as the Castiglioni brothers, Magistretti and Zanuso, and… [+] fashion designers like Armani and Versace, to name just a few, made Milan the world centre of fashion and design. Art, science, industry and finance are the cultures at the root of this city pragmatism and of its creative and entrepreneurial spirit. It is no coincidence that our school was born in Milan, drawing the inspiration for its teaching methods from the know-how, the thinking and the innovation so typical of Milan hinterland and its history. Designing both goods and services for industry and with industry is the vocation of IED Milan, where design in all its ramifications is taught and practised. For years, our students have been distinguishing themselves professionally, nourishing both the Made in Italy phenomenon and production in their countries of origin with their creativity and competence. IED owes its establishment in 1966 to the intuition of its President Francesco Morelli. Through time, it has become a 100% Made in Italy international network of excellence, operating in the fields of training and research, in the disciplines of Design, Fashion, Visual Communication and Management. Above all, IED is an evolving educational system with capability and dedication to reinventing itself on a daily basis.

The Footwearists' aim is to improve the world through shoes. Even though there is a growing human population with an exponential… [+] need for footwear this is limited by current material resources, production and distribution processes. This causes an urgent need for meaningful change. Shoes have been made and sold pretty much the same way for the past century. While we appreciate tradition, our aim is to develop innovative sustainable technologies that will involve fewer, recyclable and nontoxic resources applied locally. To achieve this the programs stimulate new ways of thinking about footwear that will open up and improve the industry, involving new solutions and creative opportunities that were not available or thought of before. At The Footwearists we do all this through research, teaching and applying new methods that are suitable for the future. Our professional program of Footwear Innovation eliminates the typical department divisions between technology, design and business, providing a multidisciplinary platform for both students and professionals from various backgrounds. The program deals with how to forecast future developments for footwear, how to translate this future vision into profitable and sustainable design as well as in business concepts that are capable of uniting the creative, ethical, commercial and technical dimensions of people and their footwear. Who is this for? Professional Footwear Innovation is meant for anyone who wants to make a profitable and meaningful contribution to the future of the footwear industry. We are looking for people who have a passion for footwear and are highly motivated to better themselves and their environment.

You will no doubt enjoy buying Italian food but if you sometimes crave for food from home, large supermarkets now carry a range of non Italian food and some specialised shops exist in the cities. If you are shopping for clothes, accessories or other articles, large towns will have department stores but most Italians still prefer to shop in small speciality stores and boutiques where they receive greater attention and a more personalised service. Considering accommodation, food, telephone, local travel and leisure costs, students should consider a monthly budget of 700-900 Euro, depending on the location. [-]

Italy Milan October 2017

The School Domus Academy is a living laboratory. An incubator of talents and a springboard for interdisciplinary adventures. A place where stellar careers are launched. At Domus Academy, we help students become protagonists in the highly competitive world of fashion and design. Offering one-year master’s courses in a wide variety of design specializations, the school centers around a “learning by designing” methodology, in which students solve real-life design probl… [+] ems with the help of world-class faculty members who are opinion leaders in their fields. 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).
