Every season, designers show their latest creations, "looks" that eventually make it from runways to store racks all over the world. It's the job of the merchandise manager to choose the best of these looks and trends, mixing and matching colors, sizes, and silhouettes to give customers what they want at a price they're willing to pay. It's a challenging and rewarding career that combines the creative skills and analytical thinking. Merchandising management is where fashion meets business. New York City provides the best setting for any student who is fascinated with fashion merchandising. Instructed by experienced industry professionals, you'll have the opportunity to learn real-world skills beyond the classroom by visiting showrooms, specialty shops, and buying offices throughout the city. Internships and capstone classes provide additional firsthand experience and networking opportunities. Working individually and in teams, you'll study fashion marketing, product development, planning, and fashion management. You'll master the skills needed in global retail operations and management, and learn how to combine your sense of style with business acumen.
