OUTCOMES AND PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

Like all degree Programs at Marconi University, the Master in Fashion Management & Design is based on a concept called “Outcomes Based Learning”. This breaks up the educational experience into the categories of knowledge and ability, identifying the things a student should know and be able to do upon completion. The Master program is structured to train professionals to meet the needs of internationally renowned fashion designers, through an innovative approach combining theoretical knowledge with practical experiences. Virtual laboratories, case studies, lectures and testimonies given by experts in the field ensure a highly practical and operational approach which emphasizes the Italian creativity and management system that made the fashion sector an excellence in the world. The Master was developed for those looking for professional training and refreshment in the field of fashion conception and design, in the realization of the fashion product, in the management and valorization of a fashion factory through appropriate communication and promotion strategies. More specifically, the expert in Fashion Management & Design will be able to follow the whole process of the fashion industry, from the products planning and design to the marketing, promotion and communication activities (e.g. fashion shows, showrooms, magazines, etc...). He/she can manage the entire fashion product lifecycle until its distribution and introduction to the target market.
