Located in Gate 8 at the DIFC, Istituto Marangoni Dubai offers students a contemporary and stylish environment equipped with all the industry- and sector-specific facilities, including drawing and sketching room, pattern & cutting room, fabric library, fashion and design book library and an outdoor terrace.

With 70% of the academic staff coming from Italy and the others recruited locally, Istituto Marangoni provides students with the innovative “learning by doing” teaching approach that blends the traditional academic studies with the creative and practical activities.

Thanks to its international network of eight established schools in Milan, Florence, Paris, London, Mumbai, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Miami, students also have the opportunity to begin their studies in one school, and complete them in another via Cross School Study Options.
