Learn how to manage a project on both a strategic and technical level, as you exchange ideas with top industry professionals. Here's what awaits you with the Master’s Degree in Interior Design at IED Milano

The Master’s Degree in Interior Design at IED Milano is a highly vocational course that has been running for more than 15 years, always keeping up with industry trends and market evolutions, making the most of continuous interactions and multidisciplinary knowledge as a hallmark of IED. This course stands out for a strongly innovative human-centred approach with people as the focus, because designing spaces is also about listening to emotions and human needs. 

Being an Interior Designer today means that you are not just required to know how to design a space in terms of selecting appropriate furnishings, materials, and colours. You are also expected to provide solutions when it comes to enhancing spaces and service design. Along this path, you will be practising empathy and creativity to develop your own sense of freedom, as you design new spaces that can bring a highly original touch and work flawlessly.

Information to decide

A cross-disciplinary Master’s Degree to design fluid, empathetic and inclusive concepts adapting to a new way of thinking and shaping society

The learning track within the Master’s Degree in Interior Design at IED Milano has been developed to reproduce the way a workshop or a large design studio would work, where theory is acquired through practice. You will have the opportunity to attend lectures given by experienced professionals in the field, visit design firms and showrooms, join events (including Salone del Mobile) and workshops, but most importantly, you will carry out three key projects of an ever increasing complexity. 

Your aim will be to acquire a personal style based on a solid methodology suitable for a variety of briefs to meet the different expectations and needs of your customers. The research phase will be focused on consumers, analysing their behaviours, needs, and interactions with the environment. This will be the core of all the projects as you get familiar with the Italian design thinking model.

The course is completed with a dissertation project that you will develop working with a well-known brand in the industry. This experience will allow you to take your first steps into the job market as you go through all the steps of the process, from concept development to project execution. Over the past few years, leading brands on the domestic and international markets have been involved, such as Amazon, Adidas, Kartell, Jacuzzi, Rizoma, TVS, Best Western, Fontanot, Azzurra and Tecnargilla.

The brands and studios you will be working with are also involved in the review and assessment process of your personal work portfolio. Indeed, a key part of the Master’s Degree is about gaining self-branding and self-promotion tools and skills, to be able to successfully present an idea or a project with great care and persuasiveness.

The Master’s Degree in Interior Design at IED Milano is intended for graduates in Architecture and Interior Design. However, applicants from different backgrounds or experiences related to this field are also welcome. At the beginning of the course, the focus will be on acquiring basic cultural knowledge of design thinking, with special attention to methods and operations -for example, how to move forward once a brief is received and how to approach a project as a whole.

What brings together all those who join this course is unconventional thinking and a far-reaching, pioneering understanding of the term designer, where a digital approach is also part of the equation.

This course is for students who want to experience a full year of learning that will expand further their cultural boundaries. It is also for those who feel passionate about putting their ideas and skills into play, working with large-sized companies on some new, groundbreaking projects.

The Master’s Degree in Interior Design at IED Milano pays close attention to market demands and provides an overall perspective on both strategic and operational aspects of a project. Our multidisciplinary approach will bring subsidiary -albeit necessary- knowledge into the classroom to help you better shape your profile and move with more awareness into your future career path.
