Domus Academy is a private school of design in Milan, Italy. It offers post-graduate and professional courses in fashion, industrial design, and design management.[1]:132 It is not listed by the Ministero dell'Istruzione, dell'Università e della Ricerca, the Italian ministry of education, among the institutions authorised to award degrees in music, dance and the arts.[2]

Domus Academy was founded in 1982 by the Mazzocchi family, owners of Editoriale Domus (it), which publishes Domus and Quattroruote magazines.[3] Maria Grazia Mazzocchi was president of the school.[3] Gianfranco Ferré was on the staff from 1983 to 1989,[4][5] and Andrea Branzi was cultural director for the first ten years.[3] In 2009 the school was bought by Laureate Education of Baltimore, Maryland for an estimated ten million euros.[3]
