  • The Fashion Management MPS features a unique mentorship experience that deepens your education and accelerates your career development. NYC industry mentors work directly with you, sharing connections and insights on all facets revolutionizing the evolving industry — from ethical and environmentally sustainable production to marketing, merchandising, and e-commerce.

  • During your first semester, you attend a mentor networking evening on the Parsons campus and are then paired with a fashion industry mentor who aligns with your career and research interests. Mentors include highly regarded fashion executives and creatives with extensive knowledge and networks.

    Throughout the program, you engage one-on-one with your mentor using formats and with a frequency that benefits you most. You can meet by video conference, phone, and email, as well as in person when convenient.

    Current and recent professional mentors include leading professionals from companies and organizations such as:

    • Calvin Klein
    • The Council of Fashion Designers of America
    • The Fashion Scholarship Fund
    • John Varvatos
    • Prada
    • S'Well
    • True Religion

    A number of Parsons board members and alumni also serve as mentors.
