This 12-month program follows a fall-spring-summer semester progression. The program begins with Introduction to Fashion Management, a one-week, for-credit course that provides a deep dive into the New York City fashion industry. This seminar can be completed on campus or online.
Online students follow a curriculum of three to five courses, including a mentored experiential course, each semester. Students take Individual Research in the fall, Professional Development (an internship or work-study chosen by the student) in the spring, and Capstone Project in the summer.
Each semester consists of a series of five-week intensive course modules. Weekly synchronous online class sessions are scheduled on weekend mornings to accommodate students participating from around the world.
