Business and management

The course is ideal for you if you're looking for a degree that will provide you with a firm foundation to build a successful career in the fashion business.

We'll empower you to pursue your individual interests, giving you the opportunity to tailor-make your own fashion business degree by choosing the modules that best fit your career aspirations. You'll also be able to undertake additional professional accreditation through our respected industry partners.

A range of flexible work placement options, plus creative collaboration with businesses on live projects, will help develop your professional skillset. The Business and Management Fashion pathway provides a flexible, stimulating and supportive learning environment that fosters creativity, digital literacy, and a strong understanding of sustainability and global business.

Modules

Year one
Gain a broad understanding of today’s business environment, from the context that organisations operate in, through to trends in economic thinking and the importance of managing data in business.

Year two
You'll develop and expand your knowledge of global consumerism, fashion marketing strategy, and digital platforms, including e-tail and B2C. Module topics include fashion marketing and management, fashion in practice, marketing, and international business.

At the end of the year, you can choose to embark on a ten-month business placement or a ten-week summer placement – applying what you’ve learned so far in the real world.

Year three
You'll develop and explore your business learning, focusing on fashion marketing and visualisation. You'll also undertake an in-depth business research project in fashion, and have a chance to set up a business on your own or with fellow students.

Other topics that you can explore include managing sustainability, successful freelancing, entrepreneurship, organisational strategy, leadership and management, and new trends in management.

Assessment methods

You'll be assessed in a wide range of ways that will test your knowledge of the fashion business and your management skills. These could include presentations, work-related projects, group-work, computer-based simulations, podcasts, examinations, essays, videos, and business reports.

We offer variety in the way we teach: sometimes we'll set you problems so you can find the answers for yourself; sometimes we'll lecture. Most modules use a mix of lectures and small group seminars. There is a good blend of online activities using our Virtual Learning Environment, Minerva. We invite business leaders in to talk about their experience and we arrange visits to local businesses. All of our teaching methods facilitate your development as a self-directed learner.

You’ll also be given personal support in your studies – we're a friendly team of academics, committed to helping you achieve your goals.

As only a small number of students take courses in this subject area, there isn't much information on what graduates do when they finish, so bear that in mind when you review any stats. Management, finance and business roles are common, but it's a good idea to ask tutors what previous graduates taking specific courses went on to do when you're at an open day.
