The innovation hub in Italy

Our Milan City Campus is located centrally in BASE Milano, opposite MUDEC in the fashion, art and design district. You will learn in a modern environment, working together with other students, sharing ideas, and completing real-life projects related to fashion, art, design, business, and sustainability. The campus is located close to the renowned Bosco Verticale – a building of the future and the first vertical forest contributing to urban biodiversity. 

BASE Milano

BASE is one of the most important urban regeneration projects in Europe. It is a project for cross-pollination between the arts, enterprises, technology and social innovation. BASE’s mission is to generate new reflections for 21st century cities, establish new connections between different arts, disciplines and languages, and boost Milan’s status among the great capitals of creative production. Today the project is manifested in a 12,000mspace dedicated to exhibitions, performances, workshops and conferences, with a large studio and artists’ residence.


Home of the ethnographic and anthropological collections of the Municipality of Milan and venue for modern and contemporary art exhibitions, the Museum of Cultures of Milan (MUDEC) is dedicated to the interdisciplinary research on the cultures of the world promoting a dialogue on contemporary themes. In collaboration with MUDEC, SUMAS students will engage in projects which combine the missions of both establishments, seeking to innovate in the field of sustainability through drawing inspiration from cultures from around the world.

Milan is the fashion hub of the world and also a city that is doing great things when it comes to going green. This is a winning combination for a student aspiring to get into sustainable fashion management. I love everything about this campus, from the happy environment it fosters, to how authentic you can be.

Student life in Milan

Italy’s capital of fashion and finance is one of the country’s most multicultural and diverse cities, with a stimulating rhythm that never gets too stressful. It is an intersection of education and enterprise, welcoming students and professionals from all over the world. Being a hub for so many industries, Milan gives local and international students access to exceptional internship and job opportunities.

Our campus is very close to the Navigli district, the center of Milan’s nightlife framed by the Naviglio Grande and the Naviglio Pavese canals. It is the perfect place to meet locals or other international students. Our location so close to BASE Milano and MUDEC also means there is always something happening that you can enjoy straight out of class.
