Judith Bouvard, Dean of GGSB, said: “The Fashion industry is one of the most important sectors in terms of investment, revenue, trade and employment. The Luxury sector is also currently one of the biggest growth industries with a projected 8% growth for this year (Bain) and does not appear to be suffering from the current financial crisis.
“These sectors do require specific management expertise with more and more luxury companies seeking to recruit experts able to manage and grow their brands in fashion and design.
“This Master’s program provides a unique opportunity to acquire this expertise and to build a career in this fast growing and exciting sector.”
The program is composed of coursework over 12 months followed by a project. Each student will undertake an internship of a minimum of three months at the end of the taught part of the program. A research techniques module will prepare students for the project phase, which consists of the writing of an individual dissertation under the supervision of a tutor.
This program is open to student with a Bachelor’s degree. No work experience is required.
