Why study Global Design?

International Experience

The international component of the Bachelor’s Degree in Global Design is evident not only because of the faculty it comprises, but also because of the international semester it offers its students. During a semester, the students get the chance to study in two of the best design schools in the world:

  • NABA, in Italy

Challenge Based Learning (PBL)

This Bachelor’s Degree is based on CBL - challenge-based learning - where the Project curricular unit leads the semester. In each semester there is a project that combines all the curricular units of that semester. Also included in the study plan is a Professional Exploration curricular unit which introduces a very interesting feature: there's a pause in the semester and projects are carried out in collaboration with companies.

Real-World Business Experience

During this Bachelor’s Degree in Design, students will have constant contact with the business world, both through seminars with renowned leaders and professionals, and through shadowing experiences, projects with companies and the possibility of carrying out traineeships.
