Introduction

Combine creative and business knowledge and skills to develop a solid understanding of the fashion industry in this international, inter-disciplinary course.

Content

Please note: This course will run at Level 6, which is equivalent to the final year of a BA Honours degree, and is a preparatory course for students who want to study at postgraduate level, but currently need further knowledge and skills before being eligible for postgraduate study. A one-year conversion course for students who have a 2.1 or higher first degree in an area unrelated to fashion management, this course will enable students who come from different paths of study to progress onto fashion management postgraduate courses or enter employment.

The international student body on the Graduate Diploma Fashion Management, reflects the internationalisation of the fashion industry. Students are encouraged to draw on their own experience to develop a global understanding of the relevant dynamics affecting the fashion industry. Drawing on the field of International Business, Marketing, Operations Management and Creative Management, this inter-disciplinary course will cover a wide range of topics, including the establishment of the fashion industry, its internationalisation drivers, product development and product life cycles, fashion forecasting, fashion marketing and marketing communications with a specific focus on social media, consumer behaviour and fashion branding.

This provides students with a rich and stimulating learning experience from which to progress, culminating in a final project that is self-negotiated and relevant to their future aspirations. Many students progress onto MA study while others move into employment, defining and establishing their roles within the sector including positions in PR, marketing, management and product development.

Structure

The Fashion Language and Context unit (20 credits) enables students to locate their own work within global economic, social, cultural and technological contexts. Students will have the chance to enrich their own understanding by engaging in debate and by exchanging ideas with students across a range of courses within the School of Graduate studies from diverse backgrounds and with expertise in a range of fashion disciplines. This will enable students to share experiences and benefit from interdisciplinary approaches to the subject. The unit is underpinned by English support specifically directed to enable students to fully understand and evaluate language used within these discourses.

The introductory units Fashion Business Environment and Creative Fashion Management will provide a variety of specialist knowledge required as a solid base for study. The second term will build on that knowledge with Fashion Marketing Management. The Fashion Business Project unit will enable you to specialise in your own interests and to research a self-selected topic from three subject areas of management.

Fashion Business Environment (20 credits) will consider strategies and concepts for different types of business from small and medium enterprises to large corporations. Creative Fashion Management (20 credits) looks at key requirements such as innovation, creativity and new product development. A more specialist in depth approach to Fashion Marketing Management (20 credits) will explore branding and marketing communication theories and practices.

The final term offers you the opportunity to specialise in one of three areas of expertise, retailing, marketing and creative management for the final Fashion Business Project (40 credits). This unit enables you to follow your own specific interests and create a project title of your choice with the support and approval of the Course Director.
