Program description

Since ancient times, historians and anthropologists have studied the jewelry trade.

Jewels represent stories, wants, and identities today. Making jewelry entails expressing one's value and sense of achievement to represent oneself and society.

Today's jewelers must know how to design and make jewelry. Understanding material properties is all that's needed. Knowing their capabilities, limits, and best use is crucial.

The Master of Arts in Jewellery Design program at the International Education Department (IED) in Rome focuses on the international aspect of the jewelry business as a whole.

About the university

Since 1966, we have been the largest Higher Education Network in the creative area to keep both a worldwide perspective and a strongly Italian cultural matrix.

Our educational strategy has evolved over time, but at its core remains the same: we mix theoretical study with hands-on experience and the expertise of working experts. One of the things we emphasize in our classes is always thinking ahead, in the here and now. We are a diverse, multidisciplinary institution that views design as a tool for social transformation.

Among the many international academic networks in which we participate are Cumulus, Elia, and WDO, just to name a few.


In the 1970s and 1980s, we expanded to Rome (1973), Cagliari (1984), and Turin (1989) in Italy.

Beginning in 1994 with the Madrid campus and continuing on to Barcelona in 2002, Spain's modern era began in the 1990s.

The Group also spread internationally, establishing a presence in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2005, and then in Venice, Italy, in 2007, Florence, Italy, in 2009, and Como, Italy, in 2009, with the acquisition of the Aldo Galli Academy of Fine Arts. The Group expanded its footprint in Brazil in 2014 by renovating the Cassino da Urca and opening a campus in Rio de Janeiro; in 2020, the Group will expand its presence in Spain by purchasing the Centro Superior de Diseo Kunsthal in Bilbao.
