The cultural and scientific aim of educating new professional profiles has permitted, since the foundation of Milano Fashion Institute, a close proximity of the actors involved in the educational process, to the business system, at an Italian and international levels, thus stimulating a conscious sensitivity towards changes in the industry, and towards innovation processes
Milano Fashion Institute is active in supporting the industry through various activities, including:
The Field Integrated Projects
Full-time training modules coordinated by a multidisciplinary team of teachers, intended to give response to a corporate brie
Ad hoc training projects and research
Customized training projects for companies in the fashion industry and applied research activities.
The Field Project is divided into a training module, coordinated by a multidisciplinary team of professors. Starting from the project brief prepared by the company and by the teachers, students will work in a team that will be responsible for the creation of a proposal aimed at giving response to the objectives defined by the brief itself. The overall objective is to develop a business strategy, (of product, retail and / or communication) with a high level of innovation and consistent with the reality of the client, simulating work processes that are as close as possible to the reality of professional contexts.
During the entire duration of the project, there will be training days aimed at the sharing and addressing of the contents and methods, under the supervision of teachers in order to target and to address the progress of work.
An important part of the activity is represented by the evaluation of the results which occurs at the end of the projects in the classroom, through the collegial presentation of the project carried out. Projects are discussed by a committee consisting of teachers of the module and evaluated in the presence of representatives of the companies. Companies will have the opportunity to early select potential candidates for the internship, occurring in the final phase of the master (from September to December for the Masters in Fashion Direction).

Through the multidisciplinary contribution of the Faculty, Milano Fashion Institute is able to offer, to fashion companies and institutions, ad hoc training courses, made on specific topics and addressed to both junior profiles and middle management.
Starting from a careful analysis of the training needs, it is possible to create training courses tailored for companies operating within the fashion system or close to it, in order to understand the dynamics, operating modes, characteristic processes and peculiarities, ongoing changes and new trends.
Along with this, our research activities are at the service of companies and institutions, starting from a competitive benchmark and a detailed analysis of the reality, and are aimed at the planning and subsequently implementation of the strategic or procedural innovation processes.
