Milano Fashion Institute is a consortium set up to provide higher education in the fashion sector by three Milan universities: Bocconi University, Catholic University and Polytechnic of Milan. These three universities represent an international centre of excellence, drawing on consolidated experience in the research and training activities for businesses in the fashion sector in the fields of management, communication and design. Thus, Milano Fashion Institute is a unique initiative in Europe for the interdisciplinary approach applied to competences contributed by the academic partners. The training programme involves academics and researchers in Economics and Management disciplines from Bocconi University, in Social Sciences and Communication from the Catholic University, and in Technology and Design from Polytechnic of Milan. Usually, programs in the fashion industry involve only one or two of these disciplines and therefore have difficulty introducing students to the huge range of issues raised by the creative, production and communication processes involved in fashion businesses.
