This Master degree aims at enabling students to become professionals of the food industry and of all the related sectors and to combine marketing and communication skills with sensitivity and with the ability to manage design project methods.
The combination between food and design creates a “food designer” who is able to manage the design:
- of processes, methods and spaces where products are processed, distributed and consumed;
- of food in terms of its aesthetics, communication and representation;
- of equipment and tools used to prepare and consume food;
- of all the communication activities implemented for the promotion of food products.
This Master degree is an opportunity not only for students holding a degree in design, marketing and communication, but also for managers and professionals to develop all the necessary skills to give their creative contribution to an increasingly growing sector, of which Italy constitutes one of the main benchmarks known worldwide.
The Master is open to Italian and foreign graduates coming from various scientific disciplines, social sciences and liberal arts.
The Master will be made of lessons, design workshops and seminars with the leaders of the food and agriculture industry and of the design field: entrepreneurs, managers, journalists, food critics, designers, architects, publishers and chefs. The course also comprises visits to food companies, concept stores, restaurants as well as important gastronomic fairs and events. After the end of the course, students will have an internship experience in a company, agency or firm working in the field.
