Fashion Luxury Management is an integrated program to give students who do not yet speak English the possibility to acquire a management specialisation, in a school which, chaired by Ferruccio Ferragamo, represents the Italian legacy of luxury fashion. Over the four years of study, Chinese students develop a high level of multicultural understanding, in a school ranked in the top ten in the world for the quality of its programs.

In the first two years, Fashion Luxury Management offers Italian and English language courses, orientation sessions with a Chinese tutor, visits to the most important companies, all alongside management courses held by an English and a Chinese teacher together. In the second two years, students attend courses with new classmates who come from over 70 different nations, and reach the necessary level of preparation to graduate.

Courses are all held by teachers from the industry with hands-on and original materials. Fashion Luxury Management students also have access to expert monthly guest lectures, an immense library and the computer lab. Field trips to companies, fashion shows and trade fairs in Italy and Europe, as well as applied projects with companies, are all organised throughout the four years.

Candidates with a secondary-school (high school) diploma or equivalent are eligible and selected after an enrolment questionnaire and an interview with the course’s leading teacher. English is the official language of the course. Each academic year lasts nine months from October to June, with a total of 600 hours, worth 60 credits (per year). The course is completed with an internship in a fashion company at the end of the fourth year.
