Management - Fashion Industry Concentration

Have a mind for business and a passion for fashion? Then you’ll love this new concentration in our B.S. in Management program!

Having a business background is always in fashion – just ask today’s employers. With this unique Management concentration, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the fashion industry, while also getting a solid foundation in all aspects of business management.

Learn about consumer behavior as it applies to design and market research. Study the impact of globalization on the fashion industry. Analyze retail management theories and techniques. And gain in-demand, technical skills in the latest computer-aided design (CAD) programs like Gerber, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Adobe for textile design. Then put your new knowledge to the test at your hands-on internship, with access to Boston’s high-end Newbury Street - home to many successful designers and well-known brands.

Throughout your program and career, you’ll also have access to intensive professional guidance and one-on-one advising from BSC Career Services, whose job it is to help get you out of the classroom and into the fashion business world!
