Course details

Year 1 is mainly tutor led and focuses on providing you with the necessary underpinning in terms of broad business knowledge and skills. You explore key business and management concepts and are introduced to your specialist area of fashion.

Year 2 takes a more student-led approach with an emphasis on exploring your own interests and deepening your insights as well as having more responsibility for your own learning. During this year you develop a broader international perspective to the study of business. As well as studying four core business modules, including a module where you gain practical work experience via self-identified project, you also study two modules in the area of fashion.

The final year explores more advanced topics within business and management and you develop your awareness of your own responsibility as a future leader of business. You consider the strategic and applied aspects of fashion and have the opportunity to put your knowledge into action by undertaking a self-managed independent project via the Dissertation module.
