Career opportunities

A career in planning is widely recognised in Europe and, in Italy, is legally recognised by the national reform of professions. 

Planners are thus formally existing only since 2001, with a relatively limited number of schools and graduated and a still large number of authorities and other bodies which are potentially interested in their competences.

The planner we train is a professional who works, in Italy or abroad, in public administrations, in planning and design offices, in private companies and consulting firms, agencies and NGOs.
