We aim to continue training students to become great young professionals, excellent in their field of specialization, able to adapt into an international workplace.

  • Rubika’s students' design projects have received over 150 international awards.

Setting-up bilateral agreements and projects with hand-picked international institutions in the digital creative fields allows us to enter in a virtuous cycle of innovation and growth. At the same time, we at Rubika aim to provide the best international experiences to our students, both in-campus and off-campus.

Rubika holds the Erasmus+ Chart, which opens the gates to international work placements or/and student mobilities in Europe as part of the study programs. Other international partnerships, both for students and teaching staff, are in constant development.

In 2020 we have signed a joint curricula with a Vietnamese school, that allows students to study in different countries during the Bachelor cycle.
