The Luxury & Fashion Management MSc is international in its orientation, reflecting the industry itself: international manufacturing and distribution, cross-border ownership, and global branding and communications.
This MSc recognises that design, trend-recognition and marketing skills -rather than production/manufacturing skills- are what make today's luxury and fashion firms successful. These skills are the skills related to new product development, marketing, strategic brand management and communications delivery.

  • giving students regular access to experienced fashion and luxury specialists who have both strong academic skills and practical in-company experience
  • improving and expanding participating students' career prospects by providing them with training in fashion and luxury management as well as understanding the issues in international trends and working across cultures
  • for those who may be working or studying outside the field of art, fashion and luxury, this programme will provide the opportunity for a change in career direction.
