This creative approach, typical in the world of design, conditions the management and financial aspects of all businesses and which are a natural part of any business study experience.

The objective of the school is to train a manager who will be capable of promoting and managing, as a part of the management team in a creative or more traditional company, the development process of new products and services, taking a leading strategic role.
