study tour programs.
Polimoda (www.polimoda.com) is an Italian center of
excellence, recognized worldwide for its high quality, fashion
oriented programs, and courses ranging from Design & Marketing to
Management and Communication. It started in 1986 as a joint
project co-financed by the cities of Florence and Prato, along with
entrepreneurial associations and the collaboration of the Fashion
Institute of Technology from the State University of New York.
Polimoda is also a member of International Foundation of Fashion
The new premises of Polimoda, the Villa Favard, the Design
Laboratory and the Villa Strozzi are among the several prestigious
and historical locations that give an extra flavor to the didactic
activities in Polimoda.
“iACADEMY is dedicated to continuously innovate and set standards
to achieve market leadership and address the mismatch between
the skills of the graduates and the needs of the industry. We are very
happy to be joined by an esteemed institution in our goal to train
and prepare students to become globally competitive,” said Mitch
Andaya, Vice President for Academics.
Since its inception iACADEMY has shown commitment in producing
future leaders and trailblazers by providing venue for the incubation
and realization of ideas through lasting and significant partnerships
with leading institutions. Just recently iACADEMY also signed an MOU
with The De Paul University that allows admission of iACADEMY
students after completing 60 credits.
