NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano – is an innovative Arts and Design Academy and at the same time a dynamic artistic and cultural centre.
It is the largest private Academy in Italy, and in 1980 it was legally recognised and became part of the Higher Education in Art and Music (AFAM) system, part of the Italian university sector headed by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR). It was the first Academy to start approved programs in fashion, graphics and design.
As recognised Academy, NABA offers first level academic diplomas equivalent to first level university degrees. NABA also offers two-year MA Programs, one-year Academic Master Programs and a Ph.D Program in Arts and Technology, Diploma Programs, Certificate Programs, special International Programs held in English (Semester Abroad Programs and Summer Prgrams).
Strongly oriented towards experimentation, NABA aims at integrating education, research and production and at fostering a cross-disciplinary, intercultural and socially responsible approach to education and artistic production.
