Careers within the industry require graduates who can respond effectively to the dynamic challenges by devising and implementing new business strategies. BSc Fashion Management equips students with knowledge in supply chain and business analysis, alongside skills in financial accounting and analysis for a successful career in the global fashion industry. The course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). 

If you are interested in an integrated masters in this subject, we offer the MSc Strategic Fashion Management programme, click here for details.  

What to expect 

  • The curriculum emphasises financial literacy, data analysis and the application of statistical models as a means to solve problems and make informed decisions.

  • Throughout the course, students will be guided to apply the underlying theoretical principles of fashion management to the fashion industry. 
  • The course provides an approach to learning that encourages students to work independently and creatively whilst enabling them to develop confidence in becoming a reflective independent learner, strategic thinker and decision maker.
