The program is dedicated to the Final Dissertation conducted under the supervision of an assigned tutor.

The academic dissertation asks students to understand and analyze a key business or managerial issue. Working with their tutor, students then identify an area that requires further exploration and a methodology for filling that
knowledge gap. Students will undertake original research to fill the pre-defined gap before writing up their findings and considering their personal contribution to the chosen research domain. This includes an analysis of the academic and practical / managerial implications of their research. 

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.
