Ied courses

IED is an international network, operating for over 50 years in the fields of training and research, in the disciplines of Design, Fashion, Visual Arts, Communication, and Management, that organizes three-year courses, masters, continuous professional programs as well as study abroad and summer courses, in local or English language. Its worldwide presence, with seats in Italy, Spain, and Brazil, means cultures and stories melting together so as to result in a richness of innovative visions and constant synergy with social and cultural changes.

IED mission is to offer young talents a thorough training – both theoretical and practical – and hand them the ‘Design Knowledge and Mindset’ that will be the key success factor in their careers.


Each IED location houses four completely independent schools of Design, Fashion, Communication and Visual Arts that forge strong bonds with the local industry in their regions. Courses contents instead are constantly updated to provide IED students with the latest trends in their field of study. For these reasons, rather than just keeping in step with their times, the IED training courses are often thriving trend anticipators.
