To seal the solidity of the culture and the contemporary character of the courses and the fundamental relationship between training supply and market realities, IAAD sets the possibility for the corporate world, both public and private, to enter into a partnership in exchange and sharing of values and knowledge.
The partnership is aimed at studying the implementation and promotion of cultural initiatives and projects in the education sector, meeting the need of enhancing the knowledge and the development of design culture and the creation of concrete contacts and cross between the world of training and the business.
