About this program

Master in Fashion Management

Learn how to identify the target's needs and turn them into opportunities.

The MDI (Master of Design and Innovation) in Fashion Management provides the theoretical and practical know-how to overcome today's fashion market challenges and efficiently manage the full cycle from the product's conceptualisation all the way to the shelf and into the customer's shopping bag. As well as talks, conferences and workshops, the course includes two trips to cities around Europe such as Florence or Paris, ending with a final personal research project.

Fashion is a complex system and clothing is just a part of it. In this context, the role of a fashion manager is to identify the target's needs and turn them into opportunities bearing in mind production, distribution, branding, marketing, communication and service.
