NABA strongly believes in a synergistic relashionship with Companies.
Such relationship gets intensified every day and creates a concrete and constant exchange of points of view.
On one hand there is the point of view of our students who, still free from the written and unwritten rules and regulations of the workplace, can freely think outside the box and, on the other hand, there is the point of view of the Companies and the people who work there, who by deeply knowing their business model, have the skills and the ability of vision in order to nurture their ideas.
A real synergy. A mix that allows for innovation and projects people and the realities involved in DESIGNING before, and in WORKING together afterwards.
