Why choose the Help to Grow: Management programme at Fashion Business School?

Fashion Business School (FBS) at London College of Fashion (LCF), University of the Arts London (UAL), enjoys a global reputation as it is the only business school wholly focused upon the fashion industry and its commitment to the development of responsible leaders, managers and innovative thinkers.

UAL is Europe’s principal specialist arts and design university and delivers one of London’s largest programmes of creative professional development that forms a significant part of the capital’s creative research and development, innovation and enterprise infrastructure. Over two thirds of British ‘Designer of the year’ winners are UAL alumni.

We will deliver the Help to Grow Management curriculum using senior creative and fashion industry experts and leaders from within Fashion Business School.
