About this program

Product Design

Learning by doing is the principle at the root of the Three-year courses at Raffles Milano, a training experience that structures the mind, provides a solid technical foundation and unleashes a desire to broaden your life horizons

Without design, the world would be a much poorer, more tiring place. The discipline of design can be defined as &pervasive intelligence that invites us to find new meanings and new solutions, and that educates people to generate value and values for the world around them. Design has always been a powerful driver of social and aesthetic progress and of thinking.
