The E-learning course in Fashion Business features three main areas: vision, implying the tuning between human, society and industry to make brands relevant; management, calling for the strategic marketing of a business model in real case scenarios; and communications, involving the creation and delivery of a sense-based message to seduce and aggregate.

Fashion Business is run by teachers from the industry and international guest lecturers. The course’s final project, rebranding a major label, is tutored by a Polimoda’s Senior Teacher and can be presented as a personal portfolio.
