New York University has opened up its Fashion and Luxury MBA program under the Stern School of Business.
The one-year program requires completion of 51 credits. The curriculum also includes partaking in “experimental learning projects,” according to the brochure.
From taking classes about luxury marketing to next generation fashion retail, incoming students can also connect with professionals in the fashion industry.
Simon Collins, who founded the Fashion Culture Design Unconference, released a statement about the program:
“The world is filled with promising designers who start labels that fail because they lack the business acumen to transform their innovations into viable businesses. By developing business talent that understands the creative side, NYU Stern will help close this gap by encouraging the kind of collaboration upon which successful brands are built.”

The NYU Fashion Lab Advisory Board, which counts Collins as a member, serves to network students with the resources from the Stern Fashion Lab.
Enrollment will start May 2018 with the first deadline coming up on September 15, 2017. For more information, head on over to NYU Stern’s website.
