  • The Master of Professional Studies degree is awarded for completion of 30 credits. Transfer credits are not accepted. Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average and fulfill all requirements in a timely manner.

    This 12-month curriculum consists of a fall, spring, and summer semester. The program begins with a one-week orientation seminar that provides a deep dive into the New York City fashion industry, including  guest speakers and retail visits. All Fashion Management students, onsite and online, are invited to participate together, in person, during this week. For online students unable to come to campus, there is also a fully online version of the orientation seminar.

    Each semester consists of intensive, five-week course modules as well as one semester-long course.  Both on-campus and online students follow the same sequence of courses. 

    Online classes are organized on a weekly schedule, giving students the ability and flexibility to complete self-paced learning around their personal schedules, combined with live interaction with faculty and peers. These real-time class sessions are scheduled at times that work best for each course section and students around the globe.
