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.

Classroom Experience

Don't sell me the program. Just show me the ropes.

The competition for fashion consumers is intense. Just like the competition for jobs in this fast-paced, always-changing industry. Our program is just as intense. Because if you’re going to make it out there, you have to make it here first. The focus is on helping you channel both your creativity and business savvy into a career in a challenging industry. You’ll start with such basic concepts as textiles, fashion drawing, and fashion history. Then we’ll teach you in areas like consumer behavior, visual merchandising, brand marketing, buying and merchandising practices, inventory control, cost analysis, coordinating runway shows, and business ownership. It’s about getting you ready for a profession where you’ll be developing, analyzing and implementing sales strategies. See our gainful employment pages for possible careers that match the program that interests you.
