Learning by doing is the principle behind the three-year courses of Raffles Milano , a training course that structures the mind, provides a solid technical background and makes you want to broaden your horizons of life.Course leader: Maria Canella, Fashion historianPhD in History of European Society, since 2009 he has taught "History of Fashion" and "Contemporary History" at the University of Milan; since 2013 she is an associate professor.

There are no recipes to emerge. There is a predisposition to work, the desire to know and measure oneself with the outside world and its thousands of cultures: high, pop, ethno ... There is a keen eye - which must be trained - capable of grasping the smallest detail. An eye that knows traditional tailoring methods but is not afraid to propose irreverent elegance.Student of the yearAt the end of each academic year Raffles Milano awards the best talent of each year of the course.
The recognition is given to the student who, for academic career and portfolio, has distinguished himself in the evaluation of both a commission of internal teachers and that of a commission of external professionals, called in this case to judge a portfolio guaranteed by anonymity.ProfessorsThey are established professionals, authors of projects that have left their mark, and with long years of teaching behind them. They have an open and decidedly international outlook. They are part of a cohesive and fertile group, and they enjoy comparing the progress of the courses, the opportunities that arise in the race and the performance of individual students.CompaniesIn almost thirty years of activity, Raffles Group has built a solid network of partners who collaborate in the Three-year Courses and in the Masters. The reputation of the companies and the quality of the relationships developed are the guarantee of a decidedly fertile encounter between the education and business worlds.
