Recognition from the French Government
On December 7, 2015, Strate School of Design received recognition from the French government, after closely monitoring its quality of the pedagogy, research, social policy, administration and the management. (Published in the BOESR* of December 7, 2015). The Level 1 degree in ‘Industrial Design’, awarded by the Strate School of Design, is recognized by the French government.
As a government-recognized school of design, Strate was ranked among the top 60 design schools in the world by BusinessWeek. It is also the first French private school.
Over the last 23 years, we have grown from 18 students to a strong family of 600, introduced 5 courses, and in 2010 we set up a brand new campus in Sèvres, spread over 3000 square metres, which is built for design training.
Our aim is both great and simple: to contribute to the training of professionals who are passionate about and attentive to the needs, desires and dreams of the people they share this world with and future generations.
