the course

The three-year course in Fashion Business is aimed at training professionals who have a profound knowledge of the different types of companies that make up the fashion industry.  Particular attention will be paid to the principles of company management and marketing, with an analysis in which these methods are applied to a company.  The programme is integrated with a series of workshops, sector studies and seminars aimed at enriching the cultural patronage of the student.

Starting from the knowledge of all the different types of sales and commercialisation techniques, the fashion manager has the role of deciding whether or not to increase or reduce the production of clothing lines and accessories in fashion and luxury companies.  This professional figure is concerned with cost control, defining communication strategies and promotions, coordinating, collaborating and consulting. The student will benefit greatly and be able to make a career in any company in the sector or entrepreneurial level.

It is a strategic figure that is being chosen more and more by fashion and luxury firms to calculate the best budget and optimise costs.  The Fashion Manager can work in consulting agencies, other companies in the fashion, luxury and lifestyle sectors. They can move between the marketing, communications, event planning, brand management, retail sales, visual merchandising, e-commerce or in the research of new trends.
