Fashion Marketing& Management
I'm all about the business of Fashion.After the styles have been sketched, developed and created, someone needs to draw consumers into the boutiques and drive them to the fashion websites. If you have the energy, passion, and tenacity to make that your mission, our Fashion Marketing & Management degree program is your starting point. Working with hardware and software used in the business world, you can learn about the business of fashion—from gaining key insights into consumer behavior to managing a retail operation to finding new ways to increase in-store and online traffic. It’s about giving you the skills to compete in a fast-moving industry. You’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty* committed to helping put you in the front line of fashion.
*Credentials and experience levels vary by faculty and instructors.

At The Art Institutes system of schools, creativity is our core, our calling, our culture. Our Fashion Marketing & Management degree program is built on that creative foundation. It’s also built on our knowledge that a creative career is not for the faint of heart. Every day is a new challenge, a new test, a new hurdle. And because it’s tough out there, it’s tough in here. But we’ll support you along every step of your journey. That’s why we provide mentoring and real-world experience, with faculty* who’ve worked in the field and internship possibilities at successful businesses. You’ll be encouraged and expected to be bold. To take risks. To push yourself and the people around you. It won’t be easy. In fact, it’ll be the hardest thing you’ll ever love.
