Each city is a world center of a specific aspect of the fashion industry. An intensive ten-day seminar in each city explores that specialty:
- New York: Digital technology, retail, finance, and entrepreneurship
- Paris: Historical and contemporary luxury industry
- Hong Kong / Mainland China: Production and supply chain; consumer demographics and demand
Students gain a broad understanding of the social, cultural, and economic factors influencing sourcing, manufacturing, and marketing in today’s global economy. Guest lectures and site visits complement classroom studies.
The program is completed within an 18-month period. In the final cross-disciplinary capstone project delivered before a panel of industry experts, candidates must demonstrate their leadership abilities in addressing the global business concerns of the 21st century.
