Design is a lever for strategic business development. At Strate School of Design, we train the actors of your development, and our pedagogy is built upon a strong relationship with market players.
Because we want to train innovative and pragmatic designers, and because collective intelligence is at the heart of the design process, the relationship with companies totally structures the school’s educational mission.
Every year we aim to examine the industry trends and bring them into our training – projects, modules, masterclasses, workshops amongst other aspects of the course. Weather your company is based in India or abroad, we are open to discussions to find synergies for long term associations.
