Graduate Programs


Master in Product Design – Domus Academy (Milan, Italy)

Think. Sketch. Make.

A good product began as a need that a designer identified and brought to life in the form of an object or mechanism. It is a reflection of society. It is about potentiality, adaptation, discovery.

The Master in Product Design program combines the study of theory with the process of direct experience. Besides honing the “problem solving” skills that every designer needs, you will also develop a “problem defining” approach: the ability to determine the true parameters of each design challenge. As you learn to follow your intuition and promote your aesthetic vision within those parameters, you will cultivate more awareness of the reasons behind your own design choices, and those of others.



Master of Arts in Design, Product Design – NABA Milano (Milan, Italy)

The modern world’s transition from a “society of goods” to a “society of services” gives today’s designers the opportunity to more deeply explore the ethics of design.
Post-industrial human beings are discovering the limits of progress and working to establish a sustainable relationship with nature and the environment. Clearly, many design projects today add a dimension of socially responsible production.

In the two-year Master of Arts in Design with a specialization in Product Design, students prepare to become professionals by analyzing scenarios and designing or re-designing objectsthrough developing an experiential and physical relationship with them.
