Why study fashion management abroad?

If you have a passion for fashion but perhaps do not consider yourself a hands-on designer, a career within fashion management could be the perfect opportunity for you! Studying fashion management will teach you how to combine fashion with your skills as a business professional and manager in order to pursue a rewarding career.

What are the prerequisites for studying fashion management?

In order to be eligible for an undergraduate degree in fashion management, students will generally only require a high school certificate, but some universities may require specific grades or amounts of credits in a particular area relevant to fashion management, such as mathematics or social sciences. For postgraduate degrees in fashion management, students will need to hold a bachelor’s degree of some kind, often in a related subject such as fashion design, business, management or marketing.

Some more specialist fashion schools may require a portfolio of previous projects to prove current skill and experience level. Also, as the fashion industry is a global enterprise, any knowledge of secondary languages, particularly French or Italian, could be incredibly beneficial, both in getting accepted into a fashion management program abroad and also for your future career.
