AHO among the world's best design schools - again

AHO is number 14 in the prestigious Red Dot Design Ranking for 2017.

Red Dot Design annually presents the top 15 educational design institutions in Europe and North and South America, based on achievements over the last five years. 

Prorector and Head of the Institute of Design Rachel Troye is delighted with the result.

“We are very proud to be in the top 15 list again for 2017. As the Red Dot ranking is becoming more well known, the competition is getting stiffer. As we can see from the other winners, we are in very good company. This is a well deserved recognition of the great achievements of our students and all the faculty at The Institute of Design".

Amongst the other universities are Umeå University, Royal College of Art London, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and ArtCenter California. 

Red Dot Design Award is considered one of the world's most prestigious design competitions. The competition was established in 1955 and is organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany.

Red Dot Design has, since 2011, awarded the best educational institutions based on cumulative achievements in the Red Dot Award: Design Concept over the past 5 years.
