The Italian know-how results from a complex cultural stratification, able to integrate and renew the heritage of the classical style, renaissance, baroque and avant-garde, not only by synthesizing original design forms, but also leading them towards consistent individual and social behaviours.

The objective of the Master in Interior Design for Luxury Living is transmitting the evolution and expectations of Italian design excellence, from the house to the areas of hospitality and culture. The Italian living landscape is analysed in its narrative ability, grafting into memory the projection of a future of crafted interior dimensions, able to integrate the complexity of the environment with the needs of the client.

The pathway of study focuses on on the concept of Common Luxury Good in evolution, able to create new living environments, hospitality and entertainment areas, where the Italian style, even in comparison with other cultures, is enriched with new codes and languages without losing their identity.

The Master's programme is structured as an itinerary of research, with design experiences providing the tools to understand how to work and meditate on the meaning of their own work. To achieve these results, participants are encouraged to apply the operative knowledge acquired with an autonomous capacity to critically process and explore individual poetics with the elaboration of a personal expressive language.

The Course introduces participants to the reception and interpretation of the needs of the client. They learn to develop the ability of design direction, in order to integrate project choices that affect a space or a service in a broader vision of the planning and realization processes.

The Goal is focusing on a strategic plan including all tangible and intangible aspects (function, communication, service, identity, relationships) that perfectly meet customers’ expectations and market needs.

The theoretical lessons integrate aesthetics, anthropology, living culture, the history of interior design and design furniture.

There will be seminars of Interior Design on several themes including housing, retail, hospitality (hotels, resorts, spa) catering (bars, restaurants) for special luxury spaces (yachts, cellars, exhibition areas).

Through the project communication, participants acquire the tools for visual communication and marketing strategies, and learn about contracts and schedules for cost control.

The Master culminates with a Final Project realized on a chosen topic among seminars and presented in a personal portfolio, aimed at checking the skills acquired.

Overview

Domus Academy has always had a wide and multidisciplinary approach to design research and teaching, which makes it possible to have a wide vision on design. The Master in Interior and Living Design intends to focus on the need to explore all aspects that concern design: from the most technical to the most intuitive ones, and to combine them in order to contemplate the various nuances of meaning in the words to live, to dwell, to use.

Milan offers a wide range of historical and contemporary stimulating examples; its long tradition in experimenting and finding practical solutions to the problems of living and dwelling makes it unique.

In this perspective, the department has created a training project of excellence able to reflect on the changes and transformations of the built space, promoting a permanent research activity for design models and solutions that are appropriate and innovative.

The program includes an internship in a company working in the disciplinary field.

This postgraduate research degree provides the opportunity for students who wish to undertake an Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) research project on any one of a wide range of interdisciplinary disciplines, under the supervision of our team of experts.

AAL is one of the major emerging technology markets of the moment, offering the potential to enable and empower citizens in their daily lives using state-of-the-art technologies. Known as 'assistive technologies' in some areas, AAL facilitates everyday activities for people who require care and support, augmenting their quality of life and assisting their independence.

Thanks to advances in medicine and improved knowledge of the links between lifestyle and health, a large proportion of the world is living longer. Diseases like Alzheimer's naturally increase proportionally with life expectancy and this has huge implications for those affected, their family, the healthcare sector and society in general. Those using wheelchairs or with conditions such as autism and Down's syndrome can also benefit from AAL, as these novel technologies can be used to support independence inside and outside the home, when travelling or at work – stimulating socialisation and promoting more positive lifestyles.

Perhaps the most compelling case for AAL is the use of smart homes to support independent living for people of older age, but many other applications exist or are in development. Billions of euros have been invested in the technologies through the European Union's Framework Programmes since 2007, such as the three-year Poseidon project currently supported by Middlesex University. These projects are bringing a proliferation of new systems, requiring a combination of new equipment, software, interfaces, and services.

Possible Projects:
The architecture of a space as an enabler for AAL
Inclusive design
Context-aware reasoning for intelligent environments
Software engineering of AAL systems
Adaptive AAL systems
System personalisation
Measuring effectiveness of AAL systems
Companion robots
Reliable AAL services
Security issues
Ethics in AAL systems,
New areas of application for AAL systems (offices, shopping, leisure, education, etc.)

Your programme of study

Convert your degree from any discipline or add Marketing Management to become employable nationally and internationally. Marketing Management can be a stand alone advanced degree which focuses on the strategic side of marketing and business at operational level. It allows you to scrutinise all parts of a business to determine issues within a life cycle and customer acquisition giving you options and recommendations for trouble shooting issues. It sits above tactical advertising methods by providing the necessary skills to analyse what tangible and intangible areas of the business are communicating in terms of the 7 Ps and communications channels and whether the problem lies within the product, its communication or a combination of both. It also operates at brand level to determine how well your brand is communicating internally and externally and whether all parts of your business are customer centric.

Not only does Marketing Management allow this level of scrutiny to occur but it allows you to develop a very strong range of skills to critically analyse competitors, the environment in which you trade, new trends which may impact, understand customer expectations and act upon them and avoid churn. These skills are also useful to you if you are contemplating taking a new product or innovation to market either within a larger business function or your own enterprise. You can also provide significant consultancy work to assist many types of businesses and organisations to effectively grow their business, prevent stagnation in communications and product and align their business better to current and future trends.

If you are about to start work or are already working this programme is a useful consideration to improving your career options, perhaps fulfilling a lifelong ambition to set up a company successfully, work at strategic level within a large scale organisation and problem solve the way it communicates or manage a marketing team to deliver successful campaigns which have considered all possible challenges. Other career options include working within established and fast growing businesses across industries and sectors or agency work which allows for a longer term approach to client work.

Your programme of study

The increase in environmental regulation and concerns globally about climate change, distinction of species, deforestation, loss of green belt and more has lead to an increased focus about how best to manage environmental issues longer term. Many organisations across all sectors have found successful collaborations and partnerships have not only helped them manage risk but improve their learning's within environmental management. As population increases there is more demand on planning to provide an effective level of environmental understanding and knowledge. Often this relationship between planning and environment has been fractious due to economic benefit arguments or other planning benefits.

This has provided a huge gap at times in knowledge transfer at the right times, but in also managing brands and their reputation. The risks are very great if environment is not managed correctly and with proper process leading to bad decision making for future generations at worst, and in the best of situations ensuring correct decisions take place with full knowledge of impacts across a range of partner organisations and their environmental interest areas.

The degree combines multiple disciplines to give you a contemporary environmental context of development from a scientific and social perspective with practical tools to inform decision making.

Your programme of study

If you are serious about business this degree gives you the knowledge to trade in a global context and understand how global organisations work and thrive. It gives you all you need to know across management functions and prepares you for international global management. Not only can you extend your skills and knowledge if you come from a business degree background, but if you have trained in an entirely different degree the International Business Management programme widens your potential to work at top level in your profession, develop enterprise, and consult internationally.

The broad range of courses offered in this programme will give you an advantage to work in wide ranging areas of business covering anything from supply chain management, operational areas such as project management, business and marketing management and strategic areas relating to lifecycle and growth.

Your programme of study

A good MBA can really make you stand out for the top jobs in any type of business in fast paced major growth, transformation, innovation and operational change in any country and business discipline area. You develop insights across the top discipline functions such as finance, strategy, economics and project management, marketing, leading and managing people, supply chain and new business creation. These are all disciplines within themselves which you rapidly acquire skills and knowledge to manage successfully. These are essential disciplines to many known high street brands, service industries, online businesses and high growth start ups which ensure that if you start a business using existing skills or a new team that you are likely to provide a high growth enterprise very quickly. Alternatively you may have been employed within a sector undergoing a real threat to business existence which involves you in making changes very quickly at operational level using the range of disciplines you learn.

In this situation you can overcome the threats quickly to ensure long term viability whilst managing short term risks to business and you can be a very sought after individual due to your ability to quickly assess what needs to be done with minimum impact to allow long term profitability. Many brands have recently been disrupted by mass communications and the rapid rise in online trading, some were able to quickly re-organise their business model to avoid going out of business, some were able to innovate and others relied on a wide variety of techniques to allow them to reinvent themselves. MBA positions are normally fast paced but very rewarding in terms of achievements and business satisfaction.

Your programme of study

Geographic information systems have become really interesting to all of us with the increased innovation in smart phones and IOT, whether we are searching for a venue to eat and drink or looking for something specific in a difficult to reach location. At one time GIS was heavily used in planning and map creation, now we all have access to those maps on our mobiles and tablets and we now expect sensors in our phones to connect automatically to satellite systems to tell us our every move, whether we are walking or in the car. This has made the discipline incredibly interesting and opened up a lot more opportunities in terms of work. On top of the more obvious GIS enabled systems many businesses rely on this technology to inform them about weather, shipping, coastal locations, risks and hazards, agriculture and energy and minerals exploration.

Geospatial technologies are increasingly important across all industries and this programme gives you skills in developing remote sensing, working with wide ranging expertise from coastal, marine, ecology, energy, geology, spatial planning, and archaeology.

Courses listed for the programme

Semester 1
The History Origins and Evolution of GIS
GIS Tools and Technologies
People Management and GIS

Optional
Data Systems and Big Data
Aspects of Digital Mapping and Visualisation

Semester 2
