The two-year MA FEC programme provides ambitious entrepreneurs the foundation, skills and structure to start and successfully operate a fashion enterprise.
We have brought together a team of highly skilled educators and industry professionals to support our fashion entrepreneurs in every way possible. Our team is one way we keep the programme innovative. The team constantly seeks ways to link creativity, business, technology, research and fashion.
