This innovative and exciting Fashion Business & Management course brings creative thinking and innovation to the forefront of fashion management. It is the ideal course for those looking to excel in business within management positions in the fashion industry. The course is global in its focus and works closely with fashion industry professionals and fashion organisations.
You’ll build a portfolio of skills and knowledge that will give you a strong grounding in fashion business practices and the application of innovative thinking in a commercial context.
This new MA builds on the success of the BA (Hons) Fashion Management & Marketing course at UCA Epsom and provides a learning environment where you can develop both creative and strategic skills in fashion business, management and marketing.
You’ll be taught the core principles of fashion business and management through a range of approaches, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, and will undertake both formative and summative assessment including reflective personal blogs and journals.
The course will support you in developing your practice through relevant research, a deep understanding of how the fashion industry operates, and engagement with global fashion brands, in order to plan and produce a major project that is unique to you.
Running throughout the course is a strong emphasis on both independent research and participatory group work. If you’re a full time student, you’ll have scheduled teaching for up to two days a week, as well as access to workshops and studios for a further three days (as agreed with your tutor). You’ll also have access to the industry lectures and workshops that form part of the wider postgraduate programme around the culture of design, fashion and business.
