NDTV Profit features Vogue Institute of Art and Design as India’s most admirable brands, an initiative by The Brand Story. Featuring Vogue Institute of Art and Design as the best art and design institute in India, NDTV Profit shares the journey and milestones achieved by the institute under the guidance of Dr. M.M.

Vogue Institute of Art and Design has created a niche for itself in the area of design with programs in interior designing, textile designing, fashion designing, animation and graphic designing, infrastructure management, fashion retail management, merchant designing, jewellery designing and more. The institute is the first to initiate a degree program in fashion designing in the year 1999 with Bengaluru University.
The college campus is one of the finest in the country which is well-equipped with facilities like libraries, laboratories, amphitheatre, auditorium and more. The institute provides innovative teaching methodologies and practices to implement outcome-based learning, and stimulate students’ learning interests. Vogue Institute of Art and Design develops design professionals with a dynamic global outlook, a sense of social responsibility, critical and creative thinking. The institute is located in Apparel Park and this gives an added advantage for the students to gain regular interaction and exposure with the industry and ultimately helps them in gaining more placement opportunities.
The programs are designed to bridge the gap between the industry and education system and shape the students for their careers by offering industry exposures through industry visits and workshops by industry experts. From having an active placement team to organize path-breaking events, providing integrated education programs, to enhancing out of classroom experiences, the training approach has been more holistic for the students. The institute provides a fine blend of theory with a practical outlook.
Emphasizing further, Vogue Institute of Art and Design is the first institution in the country to introduce post-graduation programs in the field of art and design. The institute has started an MBA program for students who are aspiring to become a management post-graduate in the field of design under the name of Dr Kariappa School of Art and Design Management, recognized by AICTE, New Delhi. The institute also launched its Business School Division last year, for professional MBA programs in the management domain.
The institute has tied up with international faculties and mentors to mentor the students on a regular basis and provide international exposure. The institute is also gaining collaborations with international universities like Academia Costume and Moda, Italy, and De Montfort University, UK.
Dr. M.M. Kariappa, the man behind the successful journey of Vogue Institute of Art and Design stated, “From an institute which started with just 4 students in a single room, the academy now conducts courses for 700-800 students. We have come a long way since 24 years. We have built a strong ecosystem for our students and expanded the dynamics of our curriculum offerings. We see a glorious future for all of us and are certain to reach places in the course of time as an institute.”
