The Master in Fashion Management program is workshop-based (based on research issues defined by the faculty, in collaboration with external professionals and industrial partners), supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the program leader, and project leaders guide students via individual coaching and project mentorship.
The program consists of four main modules including DNA kicks, courses, and workshops, followed by a fifth module providing a professional experience period and a final portfolio presentation.
The modular structure is customizable, allowing flexibility and variety to better serve each student’s needs and goals.
