The global fashion market is worth roughly three trillion US dollars each year, representing 2% of the world's Gross Domestic Product. The prime contenders among this rich industry’s sub-sectors are womenswear (621 billion), menswear (402 billion), childrenswear (186 billion), and sportswear (90.4 billion). To get an idea of the overall magnitude of the value created, just consider that wedding apparel on its own generates a sales volume of 57 billion US dollars, not to mention all those activities that are usually only partially associated with the fashion world, such as beauty products and some trendy household accessories.

Furthermore, Italy is definitely the right place to deepen one’s knowledge of and study fashion management, due to both tradition and culture, and economic factors. In the past, the fashion market has consistently represented one of the most important fields of the Made in Italy domain; the same can be said today, as 2017 sales figures total 87 billion euros (an increase of 3% over 2016).*

But fashion is not only about numbers; it’s about creativity, passion, ways to socialise and express oneself. For these reasons and because of this complexity, it is essential to gain a good knowledge of the types of management, communication, and marketing that make up the fashion universe, just as it is to learn to understand the types of technological innovation related to it. The Rome Business School’s Master Course in Fashion Management is geared to provide all the tools necessary to interpret, forecast, and follow this sector’s phases and trends, and is aimed at students, professionals, and entrepreneurs in the fashion, design, and luxury industries who wish to acquire the basics of and the ability to interpret the evolution of this special market, setting up and maintaining successful businesses.
