O IED São Paulo:
O Istituto Europeo di Design – IED São Paulo, primeira unidade fora da Europa, foi inaugurado em 2005, quando o Brasil iniciava seu crescimento econômico. Os grandes recursos naturais de um lado e a afirmação dos próprios valores culturais do outro lançaram o Brasil na dimensão dos países que podem fazer a diferença na nova ordem econômica mundial que se desenha.
A apreciação, por parte dos brasileiros, da criatividade italiana nos campos da moda e do design fertilizou o terreno para uma faculdade e permitiu ao IED traçar um percurso formativo capaz de preparar profissionais valorizados e disputados pelas empresas brasileiras.
A cada ano, o IED contribui para posicionar São Paulo como capital da moda latino-americana. No campo do design, a escola colabora para a emancipação do produto brasileiro no mercado externo. O modelo didático do IED também tem permitido a realização de programas educativos para o desenvolvimento de diferentes setores produtivos em alguns estados brasileiros, com parcerias estratégicas com os setores público e privado.
