The program is dedicated to the Final Management Project, conducted under the supervision of an assigned tutor.

Divided into 2 parts: Project Proposal and Final Management Project (FMP).

Project Proposal

The Proposal is the key roadmap to guide and direct the Final Management Project. It provides a clear structure of the future project and indicates the key approaches, methodologies, sources and resources that will be used. The time frame to complete the proposal is 1 month and the key aims, objectives, methods and approaches for the FMP must be clearly and coherently presented in the final proposal document (2,000 words).

Final Management Project (FMP)

The FMP is 15,000 words which can be completed at a distance via the Professional or Academic track.

Students are encouraged to choose a subject related to their future career and will be supervised by an assigned tutor during the FMP. Regular, scheduled contact with the tutor is required, with milestone checks and evaluations performed for every progressive chapter and stage of completion.

Focusing on a Fashion and Luxury-related topic of students’ choice, this is an applied or theoretical research project with two tracks:

  • Professional Track

Students shall base their FMP on professional experience and complete in parallel an approved internship (minimum of 10 and up to 26 weeks) or full-time employment (temporary or permanent employment contract).

International students must abide by the respective country’s regulatory requirements before commencing their FMP.

  • Academic Track

Students who choose not to base their FMP on professional experience shall address a particular research question/hypothesis or knowledge gap in the field of their study. The research question/hypothesis should be international in context.

International student must abide by the respective country’s regulatory requirements before commencing on their FMP. Those who choose to complete their FMP in Singapore must do so on-campus at SIM.

Students will take part in a one-week study trip to a European Fashion Capital.

  • They will have the opportunity to meet with leading industry professionals and go on exclusive behind-the-scenes visits to companies in the fashion, design and luxury industries.
  • During the company visits, students will work on a specialised field research project relating to one of these industries and in alignment with their future career ambitions.

Note: The study trip is contingent on global conditions and travel restrictions.

Complementing the core curriculum are personal and professional development workshops which students can attend to strengthen their employability profile.

  • These workshops can include current topics of interest, recent management and industry-specific trends, research and career development.
