Course summary

OVERVIEW

This programme provides an opportunity for you to develop specialist knowledge of fashion buying and merchandising from a managerial perspective and the skills required to thrive successfully within this fast-paced, competitive, global industry. To achieve this, the course takes a vocational approach with a strong academic underpinning, whilst encouraging creativity.

Industry-related briefs, supported by local and international fashion businesses, will expose students to live situations where they will make real-world decisions and learn to communicate effectively at all levels and across language barriers. Fundamental to the programme is the development of professional, managerial and personal abilities, such as commercial awareness, financial analysis, negotiation and relationship management, all essential to success in international business.

The balance between academic underpinning and vocational partnerships facilitates the development of research and analytical skills, providing a deep understanding of technology, sustainability, ethics, finance, future markets, profit margins, pricing, sales strategies, and turnover. The MSc Fashion Buying and Merchandising Management will equip graduates with a range of key skills required to help evolve the fashion industry to become more ethically conscious, socially progressive and environmentally sustainable.

CAREER PROSPECTS

Alumni of our previous MA in Fashion Buying and Merchandising Management are employed globally within an extremely competitive environment in which strategic buyers and merchandisers are highly sought after. In order to produce these strategists, the course aligns itself with successful and forward-thinking businesses and professionals, working collaboratively to produce high-quality graduates who progress quickly within their career.

Students will develop employability skills by engaging in activities and scenarios developed collaboratively with industry partners, replicating external recruitment processes for their chosen career. Students will be given the opportunity to engage in additional activities from industry professionals in the form of guest lectures, company talks and visits to external organisations.
