Docenti di Progetto

Imparare direttamente dai protagonisti vuol dire acquisire alla fonte le visioni e i metodi più avanzati. A differenza dei Master tradizionali, i Master RafflesMilano portano in aula saperi in azione grazie a 10 professionisti ai vertici del mercato che si alternano in aula nell’arco dei dieci mesi.

Each professional spends a month with the students. 8 four-week months and 2 three-week months.

Per ogni settimana è previsto un giorno da 6 ore e un giorno da 8 ore di lezione con il professionista.

At the end of the month, the student receives an evaluation on the developed project.

Some professionals can be replaced during the Master, with other top-level studios, maintaining the international Faculty’s standards.

Docenti di Metodo

There are some kinds of practical and theoretical knowledge and abilities that cannot be learned overnight, but need tailored tutoring. You never know when you will need them, but one thing is certain: you will.

For this reason, the students have 200 hours of lessons with the Method Lecturers which are spread over the 10 months of the Master.

Alcuni dei Docenti di metodo potrebbero essere sostituiti durante il Master, mantenendo il livello della Faculty invariato.
