LISAA School of Design

International education is all about the versatility of students and academics who travel to other areas of the world to learn, work or teach. The primary objectives of international education are the development of knowledge and cultural resources, the study of places and cultures and the acquisition of intercultural skills in the process.

However, all of this doesn’t come easily. While many hurdles can be sought out, the one associated with the financial disadvantage are the most dreadful. Many times, students seek international education, however, they cannot afford to do so; all because of finances. Even most times, parents dread their children living alone in a foreign country.

The LISAA School of Design was established, keeping the solution to the above question in mind. It was set up to make design education accessible to all aspiring students. The esteemed institution brings international design education to India at a competitive fee structure.

The institution not only works out the suggested problem;it also eradicates rote learning. The LISAA School of Design also brought to light the fact of inadequacy on art education (K-12). Students are oblivious of International Art and Design trends or even the Indian Arts from and their origins. Hence, LISAA took the opportunity of a design school that bridges the gap between the industry and the students.

LISAA is recognized by the Cumulus Association and practices with the industry while pursuing students’ academic goals. The institution has gifted designers to the leading organizations around the industry, including 3M, Salesforce, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Mindtree, Playschool, Livspace, and Interface.

To conclude, LISAAA ensures students are well-exposed to art around the school, design tactics, technical skills, creative thinking, and problem-solving techniques by the time they graduate.

LISAA is one of the biggest reasons I am a successful designer today. Currently, I am working in Dubai for one of the Global Design Firm. Thanks to the amazing staff and teachers, I was able to discover new ways of creativity. It was the best decision I have ever made, and I consider myself lucky to have pursued my studies in such an environment. The Reason Why I choose LISAA over other colleges was at LISAA. The approach is entirely different, and their learning by doing teaching Pedagogy is amazing.”
