Today, the group counts more than 5.000 students, 400 teachers, 20 millions of budget designated to educating, 9 premises including 7 in France (Paris, Lyons, Nancy, Nice, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Marseilles) and 2 in Italy (Turin and Bologna). A system that gives to students a training plan which includes: 11 Triennial Degrees and 15 Master Courses, from automotive design to fashion, from fragrance to restoration, up to business management of art. Within AD Education the new courses integrates Italian language and culture of Italian design, refining the education plan of the Bachelors and Master Courses in Design and Graphic Arts (interior design, product design, fashion design and graphic design).
The Paris’ campus is situated in the city center, close to the Tour Eiffel and to the UNESCO, in a building of 6.3000 square meters, dedicated to design, graphic arts, photography, arts and restoration.
The building is in rue Cambronne and it was completely renovated in 2014.
The campus also houses the École Supérieure du Parfum, a member of AD Education. The perfume industry is a complex industry, punctuated by the creative process, by the extreme accuracy of production and the challenges of marketing in a global context. In this area, it’s not only needed to dominate the specialization, it is also essential to know the constraints that apply to the entire supply chain. The school opened in 2011, fueled by the idea of developing soft skills, with a strong desire to invest in the research and experimentation, offering training that will allow young professionals to master the process of creating the fragrance, no matter from the constraints of production, safety, sales and marketing.
