Lessons starting in September 2024

The Furniture Design Management course will start in September 2024 and, given the strong export propensity of the business sector, will be held in English, to respond to a national and international audience. The lessons will be held between Lombardy and Veneto to exploit the proximity to the most important industrial districts in the sector, jointly experiencing the managerial and strategic perspective with the operational and production one, thanks also to company visits to the headquarters and production plants of the partner companies.
