The MA International Fashion Marketing brings together two disciplines for which Regent’s is internationally renowned – fashion and marketing – to provide future fashion marketing managers and directors with the practical and intellectual skills to lead and succeed in the vibrant and fast-changing fashion industry.
Our MA programme has been developed in consultation with industry experts and designed to ensure that our graduates are best placed to capitalise on new opportunities presented by the most sustained period of creative disruption in fashion since the industrial revolution.
Technological innovation is challenging long-established fashion systems and changing the ways in which the industry markets itself globally. Dynamic and fast-paced by nature, the industry is set to continue this period of disruption for the foreseeable future.
Our programme will place you at the heart of the fashion-business revolution, located in central London, the heartland of fashion.
In addition, you will benefit from a study trip to Milan, included in the fees, and have the opportunity to go to Paris and New York, covering all four of fashion’s premier destinations.
Why should I choose this programme?
If London is the fashion capital of the world, Regent’s is surely the best place to study in London. Located in royal Regent’s Park, we are often considered to have the most beautiful campus in the UK’s capital city – and with our sister site in neighbouring Marylebone Village, a haven for fashion and design, there is no better location.
The programme itself is thoroughly grounded in well-established fashion marketing theory and practice, while also focused on developing your personal, professional and leadership skills, as well as your ability to think creatively in response to change.
You will enter the industry in a climate of disruption and uncertainty, particularly to supply chain management and fashion marketing communications, but you will relish the opportunities that this presents.
We encourage students from different disciplinary backgrounds to join our cohort, not only business.
Based on years of experience, we consider there to be five essential elements to gaining the best possible postgraduate education in international fashion marketing and ensuring the most rewarding time as a student.
The best education in fashion marketing is:
Our teaching philosophy is based on personal attention: our classes are small, with a maximum cohort size of 20. Every student gets to know their lecturers and peers, and you will benefit from more contact time with teaching staff than you would elsewhere. The Regent’s mission is to develop tomorrow’s global leaders: we know that developing you as a future leader in international fashion marketing is most effectively done in an intimate learning environment.
Our MA programme is dynamic and intensive, combining modular study with field trips, masterclasses, live projects and industry opportunities. We will immerse you in the fashion industry and the discipline of fashion marketing for the duration of the programme, as well as provide you with the connections to succeed thereafter.
There is no better place to study international fashion marketing than Regent’s. With students from over 140 nationalities spread across a small community of 3,500 full-time students, we can confidently claim to be the most internationally diverse university in the UK. With an unmatched international focus and a range of study opportunities at key destinations abroad, our MA programme is truly global.
As well as being industry-focused in its design and content, your programme is delivered by practitioner lecturers, and encompasses live projects with industry as well as masterclasses with influential industry professionals.
In order to prepare you for careers in international fashion marketing, you will begin your relationship with staff from our dedicated Careers & Business Relations team from Day One, many of whom will jointly deliver your teaching on relevant modules.
As a private institution, independence is our legal status, but it is also an attitude of mind. We make an intellectual claim on independence, and our students are encouraged to think and operate with independence and individuality.
This is essential to success in both marketing and fashion. By the time you graduate you will have developed your own unique approach to international fashion marketing and your own strengths in relation to the industry.
