Art Center College of Design | Pasadena, California | Learn to Create. Influence Change.

Industry Partnerships

Art Center is a place of dynamic alliances. The College has more than 50 years of experience partnering with industry leaders, such as BMW, Disney, GE Healthcare, Microsoft, Nestle, Nike, and Samsung, to name only a few. At Art Center, students and faculty engage with businesses and corporations to design real-world solutions, reinvigorate brands, promote sustainable practices, and enhance education.

The College also collaborates with corporate responsibility programs – as well as government agencies, humanitarian organizations, and research institutions – to address community needs through design. Art Center’s local, national and international commitment to social impact design helped it become the first design school to receive the United Nations’ Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) status in 2003.

Whether you are part of a multinational corporation or a local start-up venture, Art Center offers a rich array of opportunities – from internships to executive education to sponsored projects – to partner with some of the world’s most inspired young artists and designers. Year after year, companies find great solutions, great interns, and future employees at Art Center.
