This online MA programme is specifically designed for those who wish to develop their retail career internationally. By addressing both retail and management elements, the course enables you to engage with more than one discipline and meet the full range of industry expectations demanded by the luxury sector.

Throughout the course of this online master’s programme, you will encounter many diverse aspects of marketing management; from Fashion System analysis, to the study of fashion marketing and communication techniques; from an understanding of brand management, to knowledge of the distribution scenario. In addition to these strategic elements, the course encourages the development of a concept of fashion in which it’s conceived as a systematic cultural, social and historical phenomenon, characterised by different trends, which can be analysed, interpreted, and evaluated. 



The online course is divided into four semesters which together will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in such a competitive sector. The first semester is primarily composed of theoretical modules, with the second providing students with the technical capabilities needed to apply the concepts learnt during the first. The third semester then delves into a range of other topics, designed to give you with a real depth and breadth of knowledge. Finally, in the fourth semester, you have to opportunity to consolidate and demonstrate all that you’ve learnt in your final project/dissertation.
