Fashion Marketing & Communications is an analytical program to create the master planner. This is the person who gathers information from different sources, writes a marketing plan and suggests practical actions for maximising a company’s visibility. Fashion is the most complete expression of society, and understanding its complexity is paramount for its marketing.
This course perfectly integrates the three words contained in its title, Fashion, Marketing and Communications into the teaching areas. Above and below the line, conventional or unconventional, online or offline, using images, numbers or words; the overall purpose is to uniquely convey messages that are clear and effective.
Taught by teachers from the industry and featuring international guest lecturers, Fashion Marketing & Communications is practical with two projects ready to present in a personal portfolio; the launch of a magazine and the marketing of a company. The course is completed with two experiential moments; a visit to Pitti Uomo and Milan Fashion Week, and internship opportunities.
Lessons take place from January to October or June to February and amount to a total of 700 contact hours. There is the possibility of completing the course with an internship in a fashion company, leading to the overall obtainment of 80 credits. English language proficiency and attendance are required. Candidates will be selected after a enrolment questionnaire and an interview with the course’s leading teacher.
Upon completion of the Master’s students will be automatically given the possibility to partake in the Polimoda Talent 2018/2019 program.
