Master of Arts in Interior Design of NABA
 deeply explores the issues and the methodological processes related to the design of interior spaces, with the aim of developing professional profiles that are mature, aware, trustworthy and flexible, able to express themselves successfully in the global market of creative jobs.

The course program exposes the student to several design experiences, guided by extremely skilled educators and professionals from Italy and abroad, in the wider educational context of the city of Milan, one of the most important world capitals of contemporary design, that belongs to one of the most historically and culturally rich countries in the world.

Interior design can “activate” public and private spaces of contemporary cities: it is the tool that can express a soul and a meaning to the physical and mental spaces in which human life is defined. The interior designer builds new stories and new values in existing structures. It’s a professional capacity that society has always needed in history, and that will be always needed in the future.
