We have enabled our students full immersion into the design industry by partnering with a co-working and networking company, providing Switch a campus that resembles a design studio more than it does a traditional university. In doing so, our students listen to lectures in conference spaces used by Italian designers and clients, and they share the working space with design professionals. Additionally, professors act as art directors and students as junior and senior designers in a studio, allowing them immediate experience with current industry employment standards.
