The MA Fashion and Business course is aimed at fashion creatives who want to continue developing their creative practice whilst gaining a sound knowledge of business, students from a business background who wish to gain a professional understanding of the fashion industry and fashion marketing students who would like to explore creative areas of fashion practice underpinned by a knowledge of fashion business.

The course structure provides you with the opportunity to follow a personal route, which is tailored to your interests and career aspirations. All students completing the programme will exit with an MA in Fashion and Business. The work that you generate throughout the course, presented through individual portfolios or bodies of work, will define your exit award.

The MA Fashion and Business is defined by product and commerce and all units have been selected to reflect the fashion industry from concept to consumer and beyond.
