Fashion has long been more than a job to many; it requires passion, intuitiveness, creativity, business savvy and the ability to blend all those factors together in a career. The growing fashion business expands beyond small boutiques and enters the high fashion world of international shows and trendsetting styles. Students in the Fashion Merchandising Associate Degree program should have the necessary passion to use the formal education of core understandings such as: retailing, textiles, buying, selling, brand management, marketing, consumer behavior and visual merchandising when pursuing careers in the competitive industry.
The proper application of key skills in the fashion industry will prepare individuals for branching out and fulfilling personal goals in the most efficient and effective way possible. Many factors of business along with creativity must be taken into consideration when becoming a professional designer. The Fashion Merchandising degree option should give students the opportunity to earn a valuable education while still fulfilling current career and family obligations.
The program curriculum will prepare graduates for careers in individual businesses, design teams and fashion houses while instilling the foundation of a formally trained professional. The core fashion courses will give students the needed understanding of retailing and fashion functions to enter the industry with significant knowledge and skills. Students will study courses through interactive online programs, with industry involved faculty members.
