RANKING SYSTEM OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS DEALING WITH ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN
The ranking in South America was conducted in 2015 and covered 102 design education programmes in Argentina, Brazil, Chili and Colombia. It was based on both customary curricula, such as Architectural or Interior Design, and the relatively new and developing disciplines of Industrial and Multimedia Design, Interactive and Sound Design, Communicative Design. To determine the integral quality estimation of the level of high school graduates we used the data collected from the key referent group leaders, including employers, professors and graduates.
Summarizing the capacious research, we have formed the TOP list in each region:
- 25 Best Educational Programs on the basis of consolidated criteria;
- 15 Most Practice-Oriented Educational Programs;
- 10 Most Capitalized Programs – Programs whose graduates have generated the highest annual revenue from their core business activities for three years after completing the relevant program.
