Training objectives

The Specializing Master aims to provide skills related to the project methodology aimed at the Custom/Contract sector in the international context.
The introductory part of the course gives great importance to the themes of Strategic Design and Project Innovation, in order to frame the systemic and methodological aspects of the project with reference to the environments.
The Custom/Contract sector is, in fact, constantly evolving, and in-depth knowledge provides participants with the opportunity to implement, or even create from scratch, this type of activity linked to the profession or to entrepreneurial business.
Furthermore, the different aspects of the Custom/Contract sector are explored both in general terms, and therefore addressing its historical, innovative and management aspects, and then for specific sectors, aimed at Hospitality, Real Estate, Office and Retail.

For each of these categories, participants will be able to tackle projects aimed at the sector, of different complexities, in order to cope with an increasingly demanding growing market, in which quality and the ability to respond immediately and consciously have become essential levers, in order to face with international competition.
The synergy between teachers, designers, consultants and companies specialized in these sectors will be very important.
