Vedatya Institute, a player in service industry education, and Istituto Marangoni, have reached an understanding to provide world-class education across multiple design disciplines.
The newly established School of Design and Creative Arts (SDCA) at Vedatya designed its curriculum to address the skill set deficiency amongst the current design graduates with its unique program offerings in fashion design, interior design, visual communication, and design management. Vedatya is all set to launch its first-ever design program in July 2022.
This collaboration will also help Vedatya fill the skill set deficit amongst the graduates of existing programs. Design schools in India, even today, are very focused for the most part on imparting the design skill but ignore the holistic approach that includes business training and a design thinking mindset. At the Istituto Marangoni, design is taught hand in hand with business, which is key to this collaboration and important for designers of the future. As a result, Istituto Marangoni has nurtured some of the most successful Indian designers such as – Rahul Mishra, Avinta Sharma, Somil Seth, Druv Kapoor and Jeetinder Sandhu.
In order to maintain the healthy student to faculty ratio, Vedatya has limited its intake to only 30 students this year. It has a comprehensive admission criterion in which the academic record is just one component. It is critical that the applicants have a broad-based competency that includes demonstrated extra-curricular activities, general knowledge and a passion to pursue their career in design space.
“We are proud to welcome talented students from Vedatya and to establish our presence again in India thanks to a special partnership that is meant to support the new generation of Indian creatives and skilled professionals in the realms of Fashion and Design”, says Roberta Cesaro, Head of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Istituto Marangoni.
Speaking about this collaboration, Amit Kapur, Managing Promoter at Vedatya said, “We are very excited to collaborate with the best-in-class design school of the world. Our partnership with Istituto Marangoni will give Vedatya’s students a variety of international opportunities and the distinct advantage of world-class education. Vedatya’s School of Design and Creative Arts in collaboration with Istituto Marangoni aims to enhance academic offerings by giving students options such as study abroad programmes, exhibitions, and workshops. We also see students of both the institutes benefitting through international student exchange and joint research projects.Posted in Campus, News
