Course summary

Overview

Prepare for a career as a successful innovator in the fashion business with this varied and engaging course. You’ll develop an in-depth knowledge and understanding of strategic business design, fashion enterprise and social impact.

Delivered collaboratively between School of Design and the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies in Leeds University Business School, the course will equip you with the skills to view the fashion industry from social and cultural as well as commercial perspectives.

Along with concepts such as consumer behaviour, supply chain structures, branding and marketing, you’ll also study the principles of business and entrepreneurship and how they relate to social enterprise. You’ll also address the challenges of sustainability.

You’ll mix design, business and market-centred innovation to gain a broad base of skills to thrive in a complex, fast-paced and rapidly evolving industry.

Learning and teaching

This diverse degree gives you a wide range of skills, and the variety of teaching methods used reflects this. We use workshops, seminars, presentations, lectures, practical sessions, tutorials, online learning, seminars and group learning sessions. Independent study is also vital to this degree, allowing you to develop your own designs and build your skill set.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

We use a range of assessment techniques, including presentations, exams, essays, group and individual project work and portfolios of research and practical work.

Career opportunities

This course is designed to give you a broad knowledge base and a wide range of skills to help you become a forward-thinking, market-conscious innovator in the fashion industry.

You’ll have a lot to contribute to the thriving global fashion industry – as well as other sectors – in a range of social, commercial, marketing, management and enterprise careers. Past students have obtained positions with Harper’s Bazaar (China), Nike (China), Propoganda Agency Ltd (UK), TJX Europe and the Kuoni Group among others, or they have created their own business.

You’ll also be well-prepared to continue studying at postgraduate researcher level and several of our graduates have gone on to complete PhD research at both Leeds and other institutions.
